Mount Tamalpias in Marin County California. If you look closely in the upper left hand area you can see the San Francisco sky line.

Wow, great photo and scene. Could you share the Strava route?

Adam, please do say more about these trips. I'm particularly interested in what you're packing for in that set-up - is their camping gear in there, for example?

Acadia National Park is the perfect place for the maiden voyage of this new-to-me gravel bike. Purchased the frame from the forum classifieds and built it up with parts I already had on hand. The wheel components were sourced from bikehubstore.com (Kinlin XR26T rims, BHS (Bitex) hubs, and Sapim Race spokes). The bike more than met my expectations - a nice combination of good handling and light weight. Let the summer gravel season begin!

on 32s now but fits 38s, maybe even some 40s I heard so could easily be switched to a "gravel bike"

@NHAero + @Mzilliox, thanks. I am planning to post more about it, just want to write down a few words but life has been a whirlwind lately. Hopefully this week.
To answer your question though NHA, this was an 8-day credit card tour so no camping gear in there. The weather was pretty all over the place so I had lots of layers packed. Gear list was 1 bibs, 1 padded shorts, 2 jerseys, 2 socks, insulated vest, jacket, arm warmers, leg warmers, shoe covers + a set of casual clothes - pants, t-shirt, sweatshirt, underwear. Largest item and luxury was a pair of sneakers which was much appreciated at the end of the day and the times I wanted to go for a little hike or when I spent two days in a city. I was glad to have every item I packed. Add in tools, frame pump, a non-compact camera, a kindle, some chargers, some snacks and those bags quickly filled up. In summer I think I could slim down to just the rando bag.
