Any Gravel Road Segments, 2015 Week Ride?

Postby BandonCyclist » Sat Aug 01, 2015 3:32 pm

Greetings. Does anyone know if there are any gravel road segments on the 2015 Week Ride? The answer may influence which bicycle to bring, or which tire set to install.

Been on CO 2008-2014 (missed last 5 days of 13) and I think we have been on gravel on all of them. Even if it is only a couple hundred yards into a rest stop. Couple times over a mile of gravel. Best to assume it will be there.

Typically decent gravel. Done all of them on standard road bikes with Gatorskins (23-25's) and never had an issue.

We have done all these roads on prior CO's and I do not remember any gravel on them. In a few weeks, the detailed maps will be out which should show gravel sections if any.
It's always sunny at 35,000 ft

We rode some gravel last year and I had my road bike with size 23 tires. Not an issue and the amount of gravel wasn't worth having a heavier bike or larger tires. Riding a full-carbon road bike with 25 this year tho. Although, people have preferences and varying opinions on this topic.

The lower section of Forest Service Road 39, from the Oxbow area and going up to Joseph, gualified as gravel in many places last year but it's been repaved this summer.

There's one section in my notes that is 0.1 miles long.
