Gravel Metric #11 (not the century I tried for)

I took off early this morning on my day off (I got Inventory day off!) with the goal of my 8th gravel Century for the year.  I could feel early on that wasn't going to happen.  I wanted to go to Pella today but I ended up at Lake Aquabi instead.  Good day on the bike even though it was a 9 hour metric (lots of stops).  Did I mention I saw the Google Street view car!  It followed me for a mile or so (hoping to be in some pictures) and then took off.

B- Road out of Martensdale.


One Lap of Aquabi was enough after the 40 mile ride there

Not sure what this is but I rode around it

Mmmm Green stuff

Google CAR...with top mounted camera

seems it was a good day to take off work and spend the day on grit, gravel, and dirt too.

It was a little rutted but still ridable. Just mowed
