Spring Death March

First reschedule! Looks like I'm working the weekend of March 22-24 and the Rickreall Gravel Classic is April 6 so I'm bumping the Spring Deathmarch to April 19-21.

Based on advice from integral team mate Mace I'm considering a trip to the desert, continuing our quest to visit Crack in the Ground and Hole in the Ground. We attempted this journey many years ago and had several adventures along the way, including meeting a very strange family camped by a dry lake, spelunking in ice caves, driving backwards at a high rate of speed and the now infamous tent peeing episode. We can do better! If you have ideas or suggestions please leave a comment.

February 1-3 -- Team Wreck Stuporbowl Party

The Kid and Wade are coming down to ride Blackrock and help me with some arborist work in the woods, feel free to join us.

The Rickreall Gravel Classic

On April 6th Milkshake is throwing an 80 mile gravel race that starts and ends at the farm.

Here's the route.

For those of us that are less ambitious I'm presenting a race within the race, 20 or so miles with stops at a few wineries, ending up at the top of Eagle Crest (the easy way) in time to cheer and heckle the real racers as they make the ascent (the hard way).
