Anyone going to this? Great group of people, and you can demo a surly for the weekend if you want.

I should make it down to Denver for one of your weekday rides too, I haven’t been having as much weeknight fun as was used to before I moved here

O hell yeah

Every Tuesday we meet up a 7pm, rides average 7-8mi one-way, “fast casual” pace. We end up with some fast fuckers that zip off the front, and we always wait up for the slowest riders.

There’s lots of beer involved.

My friend sort of runs this thing, usually these are gonna be a mix of either slow casual cruises, or absolute roadie grinders, always on a saturday or sunday.

:+1:
that sounds fun

been meaning to make it out a tuesday, but wednesday morning is our online midterm testing slot this semester :confused:

bummer, next week is a "camp"fire in someone’s back yard

Saturday riding Deer Creek if anyone wants to join. Pace however you feel like pacing and session some gnar.

Damn, I’ve got a prior ride this Sat.

Are you doing deer creek on the road, or on the mtb trail?

If road, I highly suggest that you take the “highgrade” route instead, it’s harder and more rewarding.

Doing the Deer Creek MTB stuff. There’s a bunch of new trail I want to check out.

Anybody going to Tour of the Moon in GJ?

I wish, but my parents are in town that week.

Gravelo info:

Greetings, friends,

We are fast-approaching one of my favorite rides of the year.

I hope those of you piqued for adventure, excitement, and exhaustion in beautiful environs will be game to embark.

It’s called Gravelo.

When : Saturday, October 6 - Sunday, October 7 (if you care to camp the night with us)

What : Full Gravelo is 73 miles of logging roads, winding sage valley gravel, and rock-heavy jeep trails that combine to defy any one type of riding or bicycle design. There are a couple ways to bail out early, but no option is easy. Wind and snow (both falling and on the road) often play a role in the ride, though to varying degrees. There are many hills.

Routes:

“Short” Gravelo:

Full Gravelo:

http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/827575037

It’s been ridden on cross bikes, mountain bikes, off-road touring bikes, fatbikes, and even a homemade brazed singlespeed with downtube shifters and 32mm slicks (you know who you are). The weather and road conditions, to some extent, dictate the best tool for the job.

It’s not a race, but some sections are too fun to ride cautiously.

It’s not for bragging rights. Strava doesn’t detect snow, rockgardens, or wind; and few want to hear what you “conquered” on your gravel bike.

It’s a 6 to 12-hour suffertaining exploration of myriad ecosystems and cycling disciplines routed to engage your head, heart, and body, and each more deeply than you might expect (or want). Then, we car-camp at the start/finish.

If you’re interested, please consider putting it on your calendar, and ask me anything you like about it. If you know other cool people who are into this sort of thing, please pass it along. Here’s a poorly maintained Facebook page for this event.

Kindly,

Evan
