In honor of the anxiously awaited arrival of Spring, we will brave the waning week of winter for a 75k adventure ride. And since most of us haven't seen the sun for weeks, the pace and route of this ride will be easy on the legs and lungs...mostly.
"The disclaimer": The route will traverse both hill and dale. Roughly 50% gravel, 50% pavement, one or two steep climbs possible, long rolling hills and a short stretch on the shoulder of Highway 15. Likely elevation gain: 2-3,000'. We will do everything possible to stick to quiet roads, but there will be interaction with vehicular traffic. You will be riding at your own risk.
"The fine print": This is a moderate pace ride (on a scale of mild, moderate, challenging or advanced) with opportunities to stretch your legs up hills and regroup at major intersections, though not a ride suitable for beginners or those without gravel experience. CX or road bikes with gravel-tires recommended. No hybrids, sorry. If you have questions, please call and we can discuss the details.
All of our rides are "no-drop". No one gets left behind, BUT please respect your fellow riders by understanding your abilities and limits. Dress in layers (it's March folks) and bring water and snacks. Both will be available at the shop. Coffee offered before and after the ride.
