Here's the loose details: Approximately 40-ish miles of remote, beautiful, wooded territory in Iowa and Johnson Counties. Casual pace, food and drink afterward, (or maybe during the ride?), lots of stopping for photo ops. The date will likely be mid-October. That's hopefully when the leaves will be in high color. This route will feature some climbing and some dead flat roads with a sprinkling of pavement.
The route will feature parts of Trans Iowa courses and the B Maintenance road shown at the left here will also be part of that loop. There may be another dirt road section or two as well. I've ridden much of what I want to use for this ride and the final route choice will be determined by weather conditions.
My vision for this is to have the ride happen on a Saturday morning. At a casual pace, it should be no problem getting done by noon/early afternoon. Then I was thinking there should be a lunch and beverages stop for those that want to hang out, and then everyone could bug out late Saturday afternoon.
So, who would want to come and do this ride? I need to hear some suggestions and everything will be considered. Yes- there will be conflicts with other rides, but most of those are the types of rides this one would not be like. (Basically, if you want to race- this isn't for you!) I'll do this if one other person decides to come or 50. Let me know........
