The Good Life Gravel Adventure - Next Saturday!

It's only a week away! The PCL crew is wrapping up the bits of prep work and are test riding the route today. Wish us luck!

I'll have some pics of the checkpoints up on the blog as well as the route and the cue sheet by the end of the evening Sunday. You can format the cue sheets anyway you like. If you don't make your own cue sheet, I'll have some at the start. If you got a GPS unit, go for it!

Some friendly reminders:
  • Please try to be at the Mopac Trailhead by 5:40 for necessary pre-event info
  • Every rider MUST at the bare minimum have a front white blinky and a rear red blinky light
  • Things to bring nclude: cell phone, cash money (bring enough $ for four lottery tickets and also enough to feed yourself throughout the day), food (if you don't wanna eat convenience store food all day), tube(s), multitool, pump, water bottles/hydration pack, ziplock baggie for lottery tickets, compass (hopefully you won't need this)
If it looks like the weather is gonna be bad the day of or leading up to the event, I will post a wet route which bypasses the dirt roads. Trust me, it's for the best if it's wet out.

Look for more updates soon!

Disclaimer: All riders are own their own after leaving the start/finish area. This is a self-supported event. You are responsible for you. Please train accordingly and bring all the necessary gear and equipment.
