————————————————————————————

This year we’ll be exploring South County’s trails and beaches- just like in past years these rides will roll at a social pace and typically take approx. 1.5 hours.

To top it all off these rides are free and all are welcome to join. Over the years riders have donated thousands of pounds of non-perishable food and countless warm clothes to local charities. Help us help others by participating in this great event.

Big thanks to Light & Motion for sponsoring this series- lights available upon request.

Don’t have a fat bike? We have limited demos available on a first come, first serve basis. Reservations are required as these rides fill up fast and regularly have waiting lists. We reserve the right to prioritize first-time participants for these bikes over those who have ridden previously.

It’s Hunting Season…Got Orange?

Fall is here and it’s the best time of year to grab your bike and enjoy the woods.

But wait- before heading out don’t forget that we share the local management areas (including Burlingame, Big River, Arcadia, etc.) with other users, especially hunters. From September 8th 2018 through February 28th 2019  and April 20th though May 31st 2019 all cyclists must wear at least 200sq inches of florescent orange; that number increases to 500sq inches during the month of December.

Helmet covers and our new Stedman Orange arm warmers are a great way to cover yourself under the 200sq inch requrement.

Helmet covers + vests and/or our new Stedman Orange short & long sleeve jerseys satisfy the 500sq inch requirement.
