I have scheduled my vacation for the summer and actually have a Saturday off with no real obligations to anyone. If anyone wants to go out and bust up some gravel please let me know! I would prefer an early (7:30 or 8:00) start and try to do about 3 or 4 hours up north and back. Stanhope? Tri-counties?(Boone,Hamilton, Story) River Valley? Don't care too much, just want to go out. I rode about 2 hours today up R Ave. and over to Fraser for water, then home up the Y Camp hill and almost all of the gravel had recently been maintained. That meant deep, wheel sucking gravel, constantly searching for the line. It might be buffed out a little by Saturday. Leave a comment if you're in. Thanks! Later! Travel Gravel! P.S. Anybody know how to get an inflection mark on the E in Gravelo? Don't want to use an apostrophe.

Sorry I can't make it tomorrow. My wife has family in town, and I've got committments. Sorry. Have fun!

To enter special characters, you have to type the character code on the number pad (with num lock turned on), while holding down the right ALT key.

To enter a grave accent (I get the blog name now):

Lower case è = right alt + 0233
Upper case È = right alt + 0200

Varnum, Thanks for the code! I would never have found that. Looks like I won't be riding tomorrow a.m. at least. May get a chance in the afternoon as the greatest threat for rain is before 1:00 p.m. Are you planning to race Sugar Bottom? I would love to, maybe we could pool there? Let me know if anything develops. Later! Travel Gravel!

Looks like it worked! Searching the Internet for obscure stuff is a specialty of mine.

Sure, we can car pool to sugar bottom. Get yourself to my place, and I'll do the rest.

It's late notice I know, but I didn't ride at all Saturday and will be going out Sunday morning instead. I will be taking R. Avenue up to Stanhope for a coffee, then back on V. Avenue. If you are interested I will probably cross 190th and R. at about 7:20 or so. Later!
