Looking like absolutely PERFECT weather for a day of gravel! Should be around the melting point starting out, warming up to 51* by the afternoon with lots of sunshine the next couple days to dry those roads out a bit, but not too much to make them dusty
I've also heard a rumor that Dan the Man (Dan Hughes, owner of Sunflower Bike) is stepping up HUGE and wants to bring everyone coffee and doughnuts before we start. This cam completely FROM DAN with absolutely nothing from me. I didn't even tell him we were meeting outside the flower!
From what I'm gathering underground, there should be a TON of people on this ride, at all ability levels. The 40 mile course if "fairly" flat except down by Baldwin, while the 63 mile route has some good rollers and is a hell of a workout for the tough dogs. If you're still on the fence, get off and get your ass to Lawrence saturday morning!
