    Until the trails open we have gravel road racing in the great white north.

    Barry-Roubaix in Hastings,Mich. last weekend.
    A balmy 30 degrees at start and three distances to choose from.
    24,36 and 62 miles of 80% gravel and 20% paved,extremely hilly,ice covered roads.
    Keep your wheels in the brown section of road and you were OK.
    3000 participants and I will be back next year.

    6 km of icy/snowy and exposed rail trail. Firm, but not frozen. (Averaged 24 km/h; 15 mph)

    55 km of dirt roads. 100% clear of ice and snow

    5 km back on the same rail trail. Soft and soupy, misery to most (averaged 16 km/h; 10 mph)
