Description

Gravel

Distance - 50 miles

Excited for Black Friday shopping? No? Me neither... Would you rather ride gravel and check out a new anamorphic street art illusion?

Triple Rock Ride. 50 Miles.  Black Friday, November 23.
A.K.A. The Black Friday Rockets Bakery Old Creamery Hitchin Post Anamorphic Street Art Illusion Getaway Gravel Ride

1. Rockets (Bakery in LaPorte City) 9:30 A.M. ride start. I'll be there for a danish & coffee around 9.
2. Rock riding - Gravel roads and Old Creamery Trail (crushed limestone).
3. Rocky gorge viewing in Dysart - New anamorphic illusion street art (OK that might be a stretch for the third "rock", but when the first one is Rockets bakery....about anything goes) 
============
Come and burn off some of those Thanksgiving calories. You are responsible for you. No cost, no support / SAG services.

No drop ride; re-group several times. Terrain is fairly level to mild rolling gravel hills and rail trail. Details on milage & regroup/warm-up spots along route:
0- Start in Laporte City at Rockets bakery
17 - Vinton - Casey's (near start of Old Creamery Trail)
23 - Hitchin' Post (in Garrison - on OCT)
32 - Dysart - Anamorphic Illusion street art, potential break/refreshments at Chelle's Bar & Grill. End of OCT, and start winding back to LaPorte City on gravel roads.
50 - LaPorte City - Getaway Bar & Grill 
===============
Riding in November can be a little dicey based on weather. If it's pretty crummy that day due to really cold weather, high winds, precipitation, some combination thereof... ride will be cancelled/postponed, or maybe pared down to an out & back on the Old Creamery Trail (An out & back between Dysart and Vinton is about 30 miles total). Check back prior to the 23rd for any updates.
