Dog Day Afternoon Gravel Grinder

Today was the last of the Herman Gravel Grinder series. This year we've had 6 weeks worth of rides with only one day of bad weather. Lot's of new faces came to Hermann to enjoy was totaled 284 miles with over 23 hours of ride time.

Every ride has it's moments and today were the dogs. Seemed like every dog along the route was out and about giving us a bark or two or a small chase.

Here are the Baumstark brothers, "what's up dogs"?

The winner of all dogs today was this one. About 7 miles into the ride up Devils Back Bone he decided to join us awhile. Awhile turned into more than 6 miles of running along with us. This dog has some endurance for sure! Eventually he tired out and could not keep up. Hope he made it home OK.

For those that missed the rides, here is a great example of the views out here, simple the best!


  1. if all farm dogs were like that it wouldn't be so bad! great video, jeff!

  2. What a nice looking dog and an even better gravel grinder for you all down south. Ride on - the Hermann Gravel - looks like some fine country.

    Train on!
