    The insulated winter shoes have been pretty great but I think I need some bar mitts or heated gloves or something. It hasn't been too bad but the hands are definitely borderline where everything else is pretty good.
    nice work

    get bar mitts

    Nice work Jamal. I have almost broken out the gravel rig a couple times in the last month, but even on "warm" days in the upper 30s with sunshine the pavement still holds many of those weird re-frozen ice berm things, etc. If I could just jump straight on gravel I would be all good. I have nice cold weather clothing too.

    Mostly I just need to sack up though. Zwifting is too easy now when it's so cold outside.

    Encouraging for sure. The gravel bike is on my truck for a lunch ride. Outdoor riding > Indoor riding (for me) every time.

    Have a pair of WTB Ventures in a 700 x 40. After looking at them, I think a pair of Byways or Trigger Pros might be a better match for my needs. Anybody have a pair in excellent condition they would be interested in trading?

    Relatively straight forward gravel routes near Denver? I assume east or in the foothills somewhere. Need to head down that way for work this week and also just starting a program with a coach using Training Peaks. Really don't want to miss a ride on my first week. Need somewhere to ride on Wednesday night to do some intervals. Friday as well. Probably gonna have to be after dark with lights in the cold. Thanks.

    There could be a million better options since I haven't lived there in years, but if it's just a workout and time is tight - could you do repeats on the gravel road that climbs the west side of Green Mountain in Lakewood? You park at the Rooney Road TH, cross 470 on the bridge and then it goes up to the top of Green Mountain from there.

    Ok thanks. That may be a good option.

    Winter bikepacking is interesting. I guess we'll keep doing this until it snows.Name:  16109316404690.jpeg

    May be too far, but the area between Boulder Reservoir, Lyons and Longmont has alot gravel. Its mostly hard packed dirt with some loose gravel on top. Flat and rolling terrain.

    Gravel/Bikepack nerds enter...

Gravel bike, I alternate between the cambium and recently am trying a fabric scoop... the seat depends on the week and how much I commute vs. more training type rides. Still inconclusive with the fabric saddle. The other weird thing, whereas other saddles I can pretty much just eyeball the level and rail position, the cambium I feel like I can never quite get the angle right. Either I'm sitting to far forward on the nose or too much ass pressure on the rear, and longer rides I feel pressure in parts without any contours in the saddle. With that said, I would definitely consider the carved version over the regular version.
    Anyone have experience with the C19? I like my B17 well enough but a saddle that can handle wet weather, stream crossings, mud, and cold better would be great. I like how wide the B17 is, which is why Iím considering the C19 over the C17.

    Thanks. I don't know where I am staying yet tomorrow. 10 hour drive. I have a 50 minute workout to do tomorrow. I might stop half way somewhere in WY and ride while it's daylight then finish the drive and get to D town later. Might make sense to avoid some of the Front Range evening traffic.

    Not gravel, but if you ever need a quick stop to stretch your legs and ride the Casper, WY Platte River Trail works in a pinch.
