There isn't a whole lot of Grumpy Grind reporting to do right now. I did a training ride earlier this week just to see what the state of the gravel is, and I'll just say that it's all over the place. There has been a lot of fresh grading going on by the county road crews, providing a variety of gravel conditions. Some areas had soft new gravel, while others were flat and very hard packed. And then there were some spots full of dirt debris where it seemed that the road graders just didn't seem to care much about what they were doing, leaving the road a mess. But no condition lasted too long and it was all very ride-able. With all the rain we had the last few day, I would say the graders picked a perfect time to do their job. With water, and some good packing down between now and April 23rd, the roads should be about perfect.
