Gravel Gauntlet / Rumble In The Ranchlands

~80 mi / ~7700 ft. These guys put one hellofa route together. Gravel back roads in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas near Yosemite. Sweet crowd, good food, fun ride. There were Cadillacs, cows, and hillbillies just as promised.  Here’s what we managed to capture from the day. 

thought we were unique until discovering eachother. this guy was interviewing murphy for bicycling mag. he has had the bike for 20 yrs!

murphys speech consisted of ride fast, take risks, just dont be a hood ornament on any hilbilly prius’. and if anyone asks theres about 70 people on the ride. (more like 150)
