    Sunyata: what pressure did you run your tubeless 40 tires at? Pretty low?

    I was running lower than I should have considering how much pavement there was on the second day. I think I was right around 28/r 26/f, which was perfect for day one. I would have liked to have put a bit more air and ran 32/r 30/f on day two. But I forgot. Whoops.

Also don't use road pedals just because they happens to also be tiny power meters bc no one gives a shit about your power and the most you are going to do with that number is look down and see it and go "hmmm that's interesting" and then you will ride through bb-deep creeks and short them out anyway.
    I like this. You should start a blog and do ride reports. You would have at least three readers (me, sjclaeys, and old_swole_soul).

    Come for the whine, stay for the post-ride beer.

    Registration is open for 2021! Main races & rides are Saturday, July 10, with longer rides starting on Thursday and Friday.

    I did the 2-day GRUSK Grande in 2019, taking advantage of the gear shuttle, and had a great time -- a challenging diversity of terrain and fun crowd. Supposedly the organizers have worked to put more on gravel and less on pavement for the new routes. This year I am tempted to do the new 213-mile ride over three days.

    Route and registration info here: https://www.bikereg.com/48638. Discounted registration ends next Friday.

    Here's hoping this summer's events can go on.

    I signed up for the Venti. The plan at the moment is to enjoy the scenery and take 2.5 days. Sign up and ride with me!
