Monthly Gravel Fun Ride – May 24th & 25th

We are going on tour for the month of May so come and join us for our monthly gravel fun ride in beautiful Wilson Creek. The group will ride at a 13-14 mph average and regroup at most turns. We will park in Mortimer around the Mortimer campground picnic shelter (other parking lots are close if this one is full). We will do two loops so we can re-fill water around mile 32.
