I was tired of riding the paved roads around Edmond so put together this gravel ride out of Cashion. It is a 28 mile loop of mostly well-groomed gravel and hard-packed dirt roads – perfect for a morning or evening loop on a gravel or mountain bike. The roads are fairly fast, the hills are fairly easy, and the scenery is fantastic. I parked at the only convenience store in Cashion and rode south from there one mile on pavement, then onto the dirt. The route has 4 total miles of pavement – have to get into and out of town some way! I was a bit worried about oil field traffic in the area, but I started at 6:30 am and while I did encounter some traffic, it wasn’t much and certainly a lot less than in an urban area.
