I strongly suggest a fat bike, or at least a mountain bike for this ride as it will be 80% crushed limestone, 10% road riding, and 10% grass and open field riding.
This is an exploratory mission for some new fat bike routes for the coming Winter. Another oddity about this outing is that we will have a rather long break for lunch (probably more than an hour) for route discussion & planning at somewhere yet to be determined.
This is nothing short of a pre-winter, route planning, pow wow. This will not be rushed.
