I agree, I-70 sucks

Living right between St. Louis and KC I have to ride I-70 at least to cross the river. Even in a car the heavy truck traffic makes for an intense ride as you need to be on guard at all times. ...

No forest roads but some good gravel roads in the area. About the roughest is Backbone Road in Boone County. Clinkenbeard Rd. is also a good ride.

Dang Cris you're more adventurous than me. With the amount of limbs being blown out of trees around here I didn't think it was safe to be outside, let alone riding.

No gravel

All my riding lately have been down the road to Patriot Guard missions, far too many of them lately. I'll be glad when this weather breaks, 34 degrees is just too cold for highway riding.
