Learning From An Experienced Gravel Cyclist

Noah is an experienced cyclist who has completed the Dirty Kanza 200 gravel cycling race (the race that I'm planning to do in May), not once but 3 TIMES! 

I sat down with him last week to learn more about his experience and also to get his advice on so many things, from very important stuff to small details that are still pretty key to help you have a great experience doing his race

Check out this video I made with my main takeaways from this conversation. Also, don't forget to check out my new series of videos called Road To Kanza (Don't forget to subscribe!)

The CHASKI Fact Of The Week

The Andenes: an agricultural marvel of the Inca empire. Andenes had several functions, the most important of which was to increase the amount of cultivatable land available to farmers by leveling a planting area for crops.​ Many andenes have survived for more than 500 years and are still in use by farmers throughout the region​. The benefits of andenes include utilizing steep slopes for agriculture, reducing the threat of freezes, increasing exposure to sunlight, controlling erosion, improving absorption of water, and better aeration of the soil​.
