Planning The TWAF Holiday Gravel Grinder

JJ and I got out for a good recon ride on Sunday morning. We ended up riding much of the same stuff we did last year, other than a trip up to the summit of Hawk Mountain, and just when we got to the new section we began to run out of time. My goal is to get him back over this way soon to go check out a new piece for this years route. Part of the planning has been taking advantage of the updated images on GoogleMaps. This area was updated recently and that has made for a great way to scout gravel.

I am still looking for my first cross race of the year but have not pulled the trigger on a registration as of yet. I am hoping to race the CascoBay Cross Race set for a couple of weeks out, but am on duty that weekend, so hoping i can find a creative way to make it all work. Beyond that I will most likely just race the GGTOC series and Porky Gulch.

Looking at next year K and I have talked about my racing a stage race, either Trans-syvlania or Breck Epic. If we go to either one I'm guessing it'll be in PA, but one can always hope!

There certainly is some great racing down in PA. A bunch of that race is part of the Wilderness 101 race....good stuff for sure.
