First Ride Outside for 2023

Could not pass up the day. Just had to take the Salsa Cutthroat out for the first ride of my biking season. My outside biking season is March/April to October/November. When ever the weather and temperature is around 50 degrees and not snowing.

Since this year I am going to RAGBRAI L in July, the Cutthroat has been outfitted with some additional hardware to assist in this summer adventure. I added a Salsa Wanderlust rear rack and the Salsa EXP Series Anything Cradle for the front. The front will be holding my sleeping bag, well a sleeping quilt by Rumpl. On the rear I have a pair of Ortileb Gravel Panniers.

Soon to be added to the rear rack will be my tent that I will be using for RAGBRAI. The tent that I went with is the Big Agnes Blacktail 2 Hotel Bikepack Tent. With the added weight of the tent this will give me a good idea of how the bike will handle and see how it will be to take it up some of the hills in my area.

I am excited for sure for RAGBRAI….it will be an adventure for sure. If you by chance stumble across this website and are going to RABRAI hope to see you there.
