your definition of loose gravel and mine must be different...I was on both of those roads within the last week and had no issues at all.

Mark,

I rode 100, averaged 14.7 in saddle, just over 7 hours total including breaks. I was in Gambier at 155 PM, rolled off from High and Rich at 6:40 AM, the official start was at 7:00, the lead pack gathered me up near Pickerington at 7:50, the first solo rider passed me at 8:10. It was not hilly, rollers at worst, more hills than TOSRV, one big grunt but I didn't go to the granny cog once.

Almost hit the deck once today.
However, 530 and Dalzell rd. were quite fun.
555 from 669 to 78 is perfect as of last Sunday.

I was on 555 about a month ago, it was horrible fresh chip and seal between 78 and Chesterhill, and 676 was good over to 792.

Good! someone verified I wasn't crazy! ( Sort of ). Anyway, sion, have you given anymore thought to the southwestern Ohio covered bridge ride you talked about in the past? Maybe a two day ride, with campout included? We need to plan this!
