Mixed it up this morning for The Saturday Ride. Bikes, Blues & BBQ takes over for a couple days here in NWA. Over 100,000+ motorcycles makes for some busy roads so I persuaded a small group to crush some gravel this morning. We ended up with about 40 miles, 4200 gain and saw hardly a single car. I highly recommend gravel road riding. The routes are seemingly endless. I call this route Low Gap Loop but Johnny Law was eager to show me another gravel option so we put a little twist on the end. Route information is below. You can download the data to your GPS device via STRAVA.
True to the spirit of Bikes, Blues & BBQ with a little spandex twist. #junkbrands

Ali is on a new GT Grade1. I think she has a new man…
You can tell this wasn’t Daniel’s first rodeo. Nice meeting you this morning!

Wallin Mountain Rd.
You can just see Fayetteville.

Hmmm…something peculiar is going on here.
Tons of shade on this route.
The only time you can speed up when The Po-Po is on your bumper.

Thanks for humoring me on the gravel addition.
Fun ride on Saturday! I will be watching for additional pebble runs. Thanks for the hospitality!
