Very difficult ride. Starting at black canyon and going over the whites. The typical woodcutter run traverses a steep canyon, this route splits north before the traverse and instead takes extremely steep downhills along the spine of a ridge.

A few years ago (2005) I attended a grave ride down in the Dubuque Iowa area. There were some really fun gravel roads and even a few minimum maintenance roads to add to the challenge. I had a great time at the ride and decided to try to put together one of my own. After doing a couple events and a lot of pre-riding, I had a good network of roads mapped out.
