Ribinou in Gö – May 23 2021 Gravel Ride

Inspired by Tro-Bro Léon and the Strade Bianche I allowed my whimsy to lead me onto the Gö ´ribinou´ and in my-head I was soon ´racing´ both of these cool road events.

In the Breton region the word for farm track is ribinou and in wider France they might be called gravé or chemin de terre.

Tro-Bro Léon is a ´road´ men´s race held in Brittany featuring 27 sectors of Ribinou and the Strade Bianche race follows the white gravel roads of Tuscany in Italy. Gö has its own Strade Bianche although sometimes it´s grey.

My ride took me along the Leine Valley and included a few stretches of the Göttingen Strade Bianche which almost took me across what was once the DDR border.

No rain fell and after over 10 days off the bike I was under orders to take it easy…
