Monthly Gravel Ride
Local Hub Bicycle Company
2633 Main Street
Sunday, April 15, 2018

We love riding gravel so much, we decided to make it our shop ride. Our first ride will leave promptly at 9 am on Sunday, April 15th from Local Hub.

The distance will be between 20-25 miles at a quick 14-16 mph pace. If you are gravel curious and want to join us, but not sure if you can keep the pace, there will be a point to reconvene before we head back to the shop. While this is a no-drop ride, this is not a social ride. Gravel, cross, or mtb bikes with big tires are terrain appropriate.
