The next adventure awaits.....June 10 in Lahti, Finland. 177km and just under 10k feet of climbing. NO flats, just constant up and down it looks like.

Looks like we will have 7 guys heading out from our area to partake in the event....can't wait!!
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Interesting, I had not thought of Finland as a major gravel destination, too many trees obstructing views, and surprised there's 10k in elevation in the country. But saw a trip report from someone on social media and it looked pretty descent (although at same time not super convinced; curious what you'll find). June 10 you should have lots of daylight. I believe we had a forumite from thereabouts, Jussi?

I will properly start my season April 15, Amstel Gold Cyclo. 240 kms including all the hills I rode in my youth, as in all of them all at once. Will also head to Roubaix for mostly spectating. Intending to hit up women's race via gravel bike as I learned the other week France has a ton of awesome gravel farm roads. Who needs cobbles LOL. I may actually try to crash the cobbled course after women are passed but if that doesn't work there's more gravel.
