After giving my road bike a bunch of boring pavement love, and hearing too much grief from the Venteichers for not completing a full 100 mile gravel century yet, I set out on my spring break in Iowa City to check one off.
Not a lot of excitement, just a ride featuring; A few back and forth runs on the Herbert Hoover Nature Trail, a few laps around McBride Lake on the grass and sand, fording a river, a few B-Roads, some great Iowa gravel, a bit of night riding, and the discovery of a road named "Turner Ave" and "Dingleberry Rd". All of it was great, and totaled for ~105 miles.
