Due to the rain and vacation, I hadn’t had any of the bikes out for over a month, so with the sun out, I decided to get some riding time in. I took the KLR out and explored Dyerville Loop Rd., which runs east of the Avenue of the Giants. Mostly a gravel road, it climbs steeply and then runs along a ridge, providing excellent views east and west. It was amazing to see how much of a rain shadow there is, because the vegetation was still pretty dry. I’ll have some more pictures from the ride later this week.
