The Farmer's daughter gravel grinder is a can't miss event in upstate NY that attracts roadies, cross and MTB riders to share in the fun and suffering. They limited it to 480 entrants and it did fill early so if you want in next year make sure to sign up soon after registration opens. This ride is in late May which for me feels pretty early in the season for a tough and hilly 65 mile ride.

After racing cross country mountain biking for 9 years, I decided to do something different this year. I signed up for the 100 mile Gravel Grinder Nationals in Lawrence, KS. My only experience with gravel grinders was racing two short courses on a full suspension mountain bike. I really didn’t think my mountain bike would be a good choice for 100 miles on dirt roads, so I had some gravel tires put on my road bike (which I had never even ridden in the road!).
