More details:

-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.
