The Saturday Ride this morning tackled the super scenic but challenging Goshen Loop. About 50 miles with 3,000+ gain. So many relentless Ozark rollers. Throw in some humidity and wind and you will definitely feel like you rode your bike. After a long work week riding with this bunch is therapy. Exercise, outdoors, good conversations and plenty of wheels to tuck in behind makes for a great way to spend the morning. I hope you got out today!
Start as early as you can folks. It’s hot and there is less traffic on the roads.
Here come those Ozark rollers. Guy Terry Road.
Tons of great scenery. Habberton Road.
I highly recommend you check out Blue Springs Road. Buttery smooth tarmac and rides like a roller coaster.
The new gas station in Goshen is great. Perfectly located for a rest stop and the folks running it are super nice.
Any store that has dog biscuit end caps has it going on.
A hard route but great morning with some good peeps. Just got this white POC helmet. Kind of an experiment to see if the color white is cooler. You can cook an egg on my black Giro Synthe this time of year. It did feel cooler but I need a few more rides with it.
Total climbing: 4898 ft
