|Ari chose his Black Mountain Cycles Monster Cross model for this ride.
Welcome to this "Virtual Turkey Burn Report". The idea was floated out a week before Thanksgiving 2021 that if you had a 'neglected bike', or if you just wanted to participate in a virtual gravel ride style deal, you could. The stipulation being that to be a part of things you had to send me an image and a few words about who you are and what the ride was about. So, with that I received a few reports, which this is one of.
I have edited lightly for clarity, but I have striven to retain the writer's voice in each report. Enjoy!
This final report is from my good friend, Ari Andonopoulous, who was a ten year veteran of Trans Iowa and the "El Presidente'" of the Slender Fungus Cycling Association, and has been a bicycle mechanic for many years.
Now I’m trashed but glad. So much easier with another rider. Don’t know if I could have done it solo.
Thanks Ari for the report!
