2016 Recap. Lots of gravel adventures @raymondmgeorge #gravelgrinder #letsride

Climbing the Blue Ridge Parkway in October 2016

In 2016 I focused more on adventures than mileage and will continue to do so in 2017. I think I rode more gravel (48 rides) this year than ever before. I rode in Colorado and Michigan for the first time and I rode gravel in the Wilson Creek area of NC five times. It was a great year on the bike with friends.
