Great River Gravel Ride 2015 (IA/WI)

This Thread will be to sort out some details then I will start the official thread.
The date will be June 5th, 6th and 7th, 1st weekend in June. Friday mostly to to show up.
This year I am thinking of trying to run it some what rally style. No definite route, I am going to assemble several years of tracks and post them all. Then people can ride as much or little as they want. So speak up let me hear your opinion.

That was one of my favorite rides last year.

Planning on going to Arkansas for some ST riding around May 23rd so I'm out at that date.

I completely agree. I also think the rally style sounds great because it lets people go as fast or slow as they want without the burden of waiting around for others, or riding above your ability to keep up.


Memorial day weekend is usually a pretty busy time for myself, but I am free the end of May and into June.

Thumb June Date..

Yea Craig!

I was talking with Atwater1- Perhaps the June date might be more likely to get the Cassville Ferry running.
