This ride is specifically designed to help riders in 2021 that are trying to complete their SR series and have been thwarted by the poor weather on both of our earlier 400k dates. This ride will utilize our Run to the Border route, from Apple Valley to Lake Mills, IA and back. This is a very flat ride, with no major hills and several places to get services on the latter part of the ride.
We have run this route for several years and the two salient points that continue to be raised are:
1. It's not very exciting - mostly fields of corn and soybeans. But the roads are in pretty good shape and low traffic for the vast most part.
2. Wind usually is a factor, one way or the other.
The current RWGPS route listed here is probably good, but we'll need to do a pre-ride/drive to verify road construction, etc.
