3 hours of gravel

Met up with Webb, Sedore, Resse and Benson at 6:30 this morning for some snowy, gravelly goodness. Ended up with a little over 27 miles and 3200' of climb. With the Monkey waiting on a fork, I took the Singlecross sans studs. Once the sun came up and I could see the road clearly (since I was too dumb to bring lights), the ride wasn't too bad. The knee held up OK to the hills and the stress of the single speed, despite me having to diesel up some of the hills. I couldn't find my shoe covers this morning, so the 18 degree temps made for some cold toes. A well placed set of toe warmers fixed that issue once we arrived in Van Meter.
