It’s been a while since the laatste time I rode the roads of my hometown. This time I went in search of what was a commonplace feature of our local roads: gravel. Turns out a good portion of what was once today’s terrain of choice is now chip-seal. Which isn’t actually terrible since I’m looking to ride crap roads regardless.
Not sure how I managed it, but there’s not a bit of flat in this route. I’m either going up or going down, and I loved every second of it. 22 miles with 2358 feet of climbing (Strava)—voor me that’s pretty good.
Note: all images taken with iPhone 4 and post-processed on Aperture using VSCO Film (Visual Supply Company) Fuji Superia 400++. I’m really digging these emulations.
