We wish we didn't need this, but we do. From the Trailnet page:
"Cyclists and pedestrians will take to roads and paths in silence to honor those who have been killed or injured on public roadways. The motoring public is too often unaware of cyclists and pedestrians and their legal rights. To learn more about the international Ride of Silence visit rideofsilence.org."
A cool opportunity to traverse roads like the pros. The Vino Fondo runs a course similar to a stage of the Tour of Missouri, challenging and long for the Mondo Fondo. Three other couse options offer the Fondo experience to riders of all abilities.
You can be as competitive as you want in this chip timed event. Rest stops along the parcourse and a Festival at the finish.
Don't miss this one: Vino Fondo flyer.
The weather caused a scheduling change of last week's event (makeup date on Monday April 29th), but it should be a go for tonight's Wednesday Night Time Trial.
Gravel racing/riding is hot. Jeff Yielding gives us a couple of days worth of the best this weekend 4/13 and 4/14:
