GTDRI Recon- Part 1

The B Road is lookin' good on P Avenue.
I went on a partial recon of the Guitar Ted Death Ride Invitational course yesterday. (Full ride report tomorrow) The section I was concerned about seeing on this ride was the B Road on P Avenue, which I haven't ridden down in years.

As you can see, the road is in excellent shape and I was pleased to see that it has continued to be maintained by the farmer that lives on the Southern end of the dirt section. We'll be tackling this one at about 35 miles or so on the route.

I think there is only one other B Level maintenance road on our route which is a pretty tame one compared to many. This one pictured here is pretty fun and fast. It goes downhill not once, but twice! Yes......then you have to go back up, but it isn't too bad, really.

The rest of what we saw was spread over recently with a good layer of chunky, fresh gravel. That made finding the smoother line almost impossible. It also slowed us down a bit. But we managed. The main thing is that the opening 35 or so miles of the course look to be good to go.

More soon.......
