This year is gravel heavy (16 miles at the start and then it gets easy!) so all September at the shop we will be helping folks choose the right tires and tire pressure for the event. We are hosting gravel curious rides (1- 7 miles of gravel) every Friday in Sept.
Beet-It-Up Route: TBD; you know we’ll try to make it as scenic as possible
What to bring:
1. At least a week before the ride, if not sooner, come see us at the shop to discuss TIRE & TIRE PRESSURE section–and join us for a Friday Night Shop “training” Ride to get used to gravel.
2. mess kit with plate/bowl and utensil
water bottle
3. fix-a-flat kit (self-supported tour)
download the map if you want
4. bring a used t-shirt to check-in for screenprinting this year’s Sara Montgomery original artwork on
A note to parents: these routes are planned with adults in mind. We will be riding on the street, and getting out into the county with larger vehicles. The routes are high mileage and we don’t recommend this as a first long ride for kiddos.
