Barry-Roubaix Recce

There is a bike race in March held just south of Grand Rapids called the Barry-Roubaix. It's modelled on the Paris-Roubaix race where cyclists ride road bikes over mud covered cobbled streets. With historic cobbles somewhat lacking in Michigan the Barry-Roubaix route (named after Barry County in which the race is held) covers 35 miles through the Yankee Spring recreational area most of the roads being gravel. With this race in mind we rode the course even though we woke up to find a dusting of the white stuff.
