I'd run less, but, some of our gravel is 1-1/4". I asked the commisioner WTF that's about. He said they had it in the yard and wanted to clear it out. Gee, thanks.........Dumbass!

They did something similar on the Katy Trail in Missouri. Most of it is this awesome small-pebble limestone pug....except where they've patched it with loose sand.

They did that on Tunnel Hill, in southern IL.

This spring, we're riding to Alton and picking up the Katy and, then, riding it's full length to KC. Still in the planning stages, though. Illinois has a series of bicylcing maps that show all roads that have a designation (meaning an identifier). Those make it handy, to plan a routing.

I live in a spot where I can ride pretty much as far as I want and not hit the same roads twice. I have loops mapped out from 1hr to 8hrs and can combine a few to make more or less miles depending on what I want to do.

In a few hours (~3-4) I can be on top of Mt Weather. The ride back would kick my ass, but I could do it.

The Katy Trail is really great. You'll have a great time. Stop in at Cooper's Landing for the Thai food. Be sure to keep your water topped up on the stretch between St. Louis & Columbia; there are some really empty stretches there. Post pics!

Tunnel Hill Trail

Planning an unsupported bicycle campout associated with the Tunnel Hill Trail this April. That is such a great area of Southern Illinois. There are some really nice bicycle paths around Rend Lake in S. Illinois I got to ride part of it yesterday. Definately going back to check out the rest of it. Watch out for the deer, they are everywhere around that lake. Saw quite a few turkey as well. Also, in the planning stages for a overnight campout at Ft. Kaskaskia then north on the bluff road to Fort Du Chartre or Maestown IL. late summer or October.

A couple of the non-steel rides :) There have been a couple of changes to the RSL. This was day one of ownership!




This is an older picture of my MootoX. It now sports a Lefty, different brakes and wheels...same great ride.

Who said they were off the shelf? The RSL is custom geometry.

Anything Ti is expensive. Doesn't matter whether it's US or Taiwanese made or whether it's custom or off-the-shelf.
