Another perfect spring morning. We tackled the lumpy Goshen Loop. The elevation profile looks like a hilly spring classics course. 3,400 gain over about 45 miles. There are a couple stretches on this route that are roller coastery fun. I encourage you to put this route on your list if you have never done it before. It is challenging not because the length or steepness of climbs but because the number of climbs.

Jon J, you might know him from the Performance Corner articles on OCA.
The rollers start on this stretch heading towards Saddlebock Brewery on Guy Terry Rd.
And continue north on Habberton Rd. to Sonora Rd.
After a short stint on 412 we hang a right on Blue Springs Rd.
The new tarmac is buttery smooth.
Twisty, turny, up & down.
So fun! I highly recommend you check out Blue Springs Rd.

The gas station in Goshen serves as a great refueling stop and launching pad for the second half.
The second half is less rolly and more wide open with great views.
Another great morning ride here in the Ozarks. Good times.
Fancy french bubbly and a “real deal” Coca-Cola. So good! #junkbrands #mexicancoke #clifshot #zbar #shotbloks #evileyehalfrimpro
HECHO EN MEXICO = URBAN LEGEND, but I still think it tastes better.
And one of the parts I most look forward to after the Saturday ride. We parked our bums at the Puritan Brew Co. for a pint of Ozark Beer Co.’s Belgian Style Golden Strong teamed up with Nomad’s Natural Plate gyros and a basket – o – fries. So good. #puritanbrewco #ozarkbeerco #nomadsnaturalplate
Fitz has been fascinated with bottles and glasses lately.
