NE Iowa gravel Route R

R was started in May, but took a couple trys to get it all. Maybe a little mud. As with the others it is rolling hills with little used country roads that have sweeping corners. There are a couple Class B Roads, but not something that is challenging, unless it is very wet. There is one Class B I have gone around (Harvester). There is a picture of a bit of mud there Doyle & I encountered. This is the longest route and should require about 8 hours to complete. It can be ridden with all sizes. Take your lunch as there are limited places to eat outside of the gas stops. If you get a chance stop in Elkader downtown across from the gas station and get a Mit Burger. They are first class. It is a little trailer downtown and only open during the summer. Also some of the areas you will ride through are Amish so watch out for their buggies. Pic's here
