Gravel – It’s the new road

Gran Fondo Ephrata is just days away and we can’t wait!  And maybe, just maybe we are going to have nice weather.  We don’t want to jinx it, but we may just break the curse this weekend.  The course is in great shape and we are looking forward to a stellar ride.  But that’s just Ephrata.  In exactly one month we will be in Goldendale for what is an absolutely amazing ride (trust me).  Less gravel, but more climbing and breathtaking views.  We will be giving the t-shirts a rest there and have a sweet thermal cap instead.  And don’t even get me started on Leavenworth and Winthrop.  So much epic gravel awesomeness your head will spin!  Let’s get this started, see you this weekend!

  1. Looking forward to this. Anybody coming from the Seattle area want to carpool? I tried to rally some friends for this but no luck. If you want to get in touch contact me at colindmacd (at) gmail

  2. What’s the word on aid stations for Ephrata? Trying to decide if I need to wear a pack or if bottles will be sufficient. Can’t wait!

  3. Just need to pack whatever it takes to get you 40 miles. Usually that means a couple water bottles, a pbj, and clif bar. That’s the best part of these rides, not having to lug around a hydration pack!
