On Saturday, March 16, 2019,
Kurt completed the Land Run 100,
a 100 mile gravel bike event
in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
Because this event brings together so much of what we (Kurt & DeAnn, äventyr owners) believe makes riding a bicycle special,
we are doing a series of blog posts about our Land Run 100 äventyr.
We started äventyr not only for rides to taprooms, but for days like this.
äventyr ~for the Urban Adventurer.
.The first series of posts are from Kurt.
The Land Run 100 äventyr: People Part 2 ~ The Bike Shop Crew
(My first test ride right outside the Silverhytten at Lake McMurtry West Campground).
A big thank you to the Freewheel Bike Roseville team!
A good bike shop team is crucial to success, and this team was definitely part of mine.
They helped me pick out gear and made sure my bike worked perfectly.
Minnesota winters are tough, and this one was no different. Because of the weather we had this year it was not possible for me to do any test rides before I showed up to Land Run 100. But because of the Freewheel team, I did not have a single mechanical issue or missed shift.
Thank you Freewheel team for making sure my gear was tip top and reliable - I consider this a significant factor in my finish!
