What: Coffee Outside Ride and Social.
Where: Gravel & Grind HQ and the Frederick Watershed
When: August 14th Social 11-2 Ride 2-8ish
Why: Because dirt roads, coffee and steel bikes are 3 of the best things in life.
How: RSVP on our Facebook page or, shoot us an email. The ride is free, but we need a headcount. Bring a Bridgestone or Rivendell or a few, if you want to show off a collection of them.
-Free street parking on Sunday
-Ride will be hilly and challenging, but not insanely hard. There is a mountain to climb though. Dirt roads, maybe a stream crossing. 35ish miles
-Gear list: Bike, riding clothes, a mug/kettle/stove/coffee brewer if you have one. At least bring a mug, or buy one here at the shop. We have some rad ones. Bring a tube for whatever wheel size you have. head and tail lights are a must, bright enough to descend a steep road in the dark. 200 lumens minimum for the headlight. 400 is better.
-We’ll hang at the shop and drink coffee and nerd out on bikes for a few hours (get here between 11-2) and leave around 2 for the ride.
