We'll be doing some of this today, 55 miles out of Holland, IN with much of the route gravel. And the weather has turned interesting for us. Right now Holland is listed as 19F. The forecast forced me yesterday to mount some gaudy flat pedals onto the Crosscheck a la true winter riding. Otherwise I'm intrigued whether/how the CC will meet terrain demands today. It's certainly faster and/or more comfy than the C'dale over that kind of distance, but we may hit heavy conditions and we certainly will have 3500ft of climbing. If it's *heavy* climbing, I may be missing my ol' gravel grinder. It will also be maiden voyage of the 40c Kenda Happy Mediums.
Report to come.
