Wicked Wilson 100 - Central Kansas

Posted in Gravel forum as well. I rode 113 miles of gravel in the Smokey Hill region of Kansas yesterday. The ride had about 8,000 feet of climb and some breathtaking views.

This was the first ride I have ever been on when I crested a hill and could not see the bottom of the hill. I actually over 37 mph on a couple of downhills. The downhills were offset by some really steep uphills that had to be walked (at least for me) at the end of the ride.

That sounds like a great ride. I'd like to do a ride like that. What's the bike you used?
