Iowa in March looks a lot like Iowa in November... brown and grey below the horizon line, with bright blue skies. Interestingly (or maybe not), 15 miles of travel north/south from Des Moines will totally change the terrain from super-flat glacial plains (north) to long, rolling hills (south).

This training ride was up north in the area where Gents will be run. As you can see from the pictures, it is dry as a bone, and the limestone dust clings to everything near or on the roads.
