Southern Illinois Gravel Ride (video)

This was my only "long" ride in 2020, 3 days. I rode across southern Illinois (River to River) on mostly gravel roads, from Grand Tower on the Mississippi River to Cave in Rock on the Ohio River. The ACA TransAm trail goes across southern Illinois on paved roads from Chester to Cave in Rock. This is a gravel alernative. Gravel riding and bikepacking seems to be the thing these days, so I had to join in and see what all the fuss was about. I hope to spend the summer of 2021 bike touring, but for 2020, this is all I've got.
