The Shop Ride - Tuesday Nights
6:10 Roll Out
Tuesday nights we meet at the shop (941 2nd St. SE) for a group mountain bike ride. At 6:10 we roll down 6th St onto the Rivanna Trail and into Biscuit Run.
Expect to ride for 1:30 - 2:00. Early season rides may be a bit shorter. Please bring a rear light (at minimum) for the ride home. All ages and abilities are welcome, but riders under 16 must be accompanied by a guardian. A mountain bike, helmet, and spare tube are required.
May 22 - 12 Summits of O-Hill!
Join us for an epic mountain bike adventure we're calling "12 Summits". The ride leaves from the shop at 10am, and we'll roll together to O-Hill to tackle 12 different runs. This ride is recommended for experienced/advanced riders only.
Count on 4,000+ feet of climbing, and plan to bring plenty of food. There is a water spigot at the top of O-Hill.
Once the ride gets going at O-Hill we'll likely split into some smaller groups. Feel free to go at your own pace and ride as much as you like. There will be some expert-level descents on this ride, with options to bypass.
Coming this summer:
Fox Mountain Meetup
Saturday mornings at 9:00am we meet at Free Union Country School for a gravel ride on Fox Mountain and the surrounding roads. The usual loop is 21 miles, and takes about 1:30 - 2:00 depending on the pace. Join us for a fun morning cruise, or feel free to challenge yourself and launch up (and down!) Fox Mountain. We re-group at the end of Fox Mountain Rd at Rt 810 before continuing on. To view the route, CLICK HERE.
