    Thanks guys! I was planning on dropping in here to make a post and take some questions, but you beat me to it! It WAS fun, and we're planning to more in the future!

    @Eric Lagerstrom Just watched. Really enjoyed the film. Great work. What lake was that? Trillium?

    I agree. First time I’ve been inspired enough to even consider getting a gravel bike and joining the cool kids.

    That was actually Timothy Lake! Trillium was just a bit small for our needs. One of our initial routes was to run the entire trail around Timothy, which would be exactly a half marathon. But, half of that trail is the Pacific Crest Trail, which is closed to bikes, so filming it would have been impossible. Also, swimming any distance after a half marathon.. I'd be surprised if anyone didn't cramp!

    @Jennifer Post if you need more pnw gravel inspiration check out routes by http://www.omtm.cc/
    and Dustin Klein’s videos:

    The PNW has many great gravel/dirt roads. Lately I’ve been trying to cobble together something cheap that I can use all winter to link all the road, gravel, and double-track that is within striking distance of Portland.

    @Eric Lagerstrom Thanks for poppin in. What size tires you all run? It looked like that single track was a bit difficult but under-biking is part of the fun.

    I don't get it. How do you feel any sense of accomplishment without a finisher's medal?

    @Granpa Chook yeah the OMTM side is great. I've gone after a few of the routes on there, and one last year when there was snow on the ground at the higher elevations :#

    We were running a variety of different sizes. The max my Krypton can handle is 33c, schwalbe g-one allrounds, but most of the guys went in the 38 range. There was a lot of climbing and rolling that wasn't singletrack, we just didn't show as much of it in the film.

    @Eric Lagerstrom 33! Legit. Did you try the Dark Larch route?

    @Eric Lagerstrom ask Stephanie for a Dark Matter instead: comes with 38 or 42, depending on 2x or 1x drivetrain.

    Hah! Not to mention you can’t boast about a PR.

    Chris Ganter and I tried one out in the Dalles.. Can't remember the name off the top of my head. I started "Dark Larch" with Matt Berg last December, but it was fully snowed in, and we had to bail. It's at the top of my list!

    It's on the way! I've been waiting since the day it was announced, haha
    Just scrounging some parts for it, and frothing for when it's all together :)
