NOTE TO RIDERS: If you have never been on a gravel ride and are curious about pace? Make the pace comfortable. Each rider has access to an online map, cue sheet, and GPS route information from Ride with GPS. Please be sure to download the GPX File and print the Cue Sheets before the day of the ride and look them over. You are encouraged to partner up with another rider/group of a similar pace, follow the map, and do your own ride at your own pace, whether that is a casual 7-hour tour, or racing your friends to the top of the next hill trying to drop them before you get dropped. This ride is 100% free and self-supported which means nobody is offering any form of ride services or sag. By voluntarily joining us on this ride you are acknowledging that you are fully responsible for yourself and your bike. If you cannot complete the ride, be prepared to self-rescue or to navigate your way back. We highly recommend bringing a friend to ride with. Hope to see you there!
Let’s have some fun.
