Gravel Metric anyone?

Besides 100k of gravel west of DeKalb, Illinois, the Gravel Metric also has some of the best video teasers around.  Here’s last year’s version:


Not to be outdone, this year there is more gravel:


Anyone want to carpool to DeKalb the morning of the ride from Madison, WI? If not, I may be forced to drive down alone. I don’t want to miss this one two years in a row.

Besides, it looks like a good course for the Albatross running 38×16 fixed.

Update: After considering whether it was really a good idea to get up at 4am on a Sunday morning to drive two hours in order to ride for five hours, hang out for a couple of hours not drinking beer, and drive two more hours, we decided to stay home and put on our own ride. Chances are it will involve gravel (the Badger Trail, in all likelihood) and exceed the metric century distance.
