2/9 Shop Ride Away Game #2

Got a gravel or cross bike? Come join us this week as we meet in Arcadia for a mixed surface (asphalt and gravel roads) ride. We have 16 fun (if chilly) miles planned for you. As always, no rider left behind.

This ride will meet at the Browning Mill Pond lot on Arcadia Road in West Greenwich (Just north of intersection with KG Ranch Road). It is hunting season; 200 sq. inches of blaze orange is required by law.

This ride is a bit dual-purposed as it will also be an early birthday celebration ride for our friend Tim O’Rourke whom we lost last fall. He loved to ride gravel, so we’re headed out there for him.

The ride will be rolling out at 830am. As always, helmets required. Bring water, tubes, pump, etc. Hope to see you there!!
