Good luck and stay warm. It seems fate always causes it to rain on days I plan events. Though, my last two First-Saturday vintage rides have had perfect weather.

It's fairly smooth asphalt. They used a larger aggregate but it's pressed in nicely. There's no gravel sections on the Saturday or Sunday routes.

If it’s a particularly nice day with nearly 0% chance of rain, I just might bring the ‘72 Legnano. This church is on the Sunday route Doc and I will be doing, but it's not a "Painted Church".
