Austin/A.J. Turner had a few updates on his rides for us for September. I think losing derailleurs is just part of riding gravel these days.
From September 10th:
Just another quick addition to the Cup-O-Dirt chase.
Knocked off the 6th metric this weekend. Discovered some new B-Roads around Kalona and managed to tear a derailleur off. Thanks to some handy work, a single speed was made and the remaining miles were completed.
From September 24th:
Chalk up another full gravel century for me. 105 total miles at The Gritty Brevet, a fun event put together by 30th Century Bikes.
