Gravel Grinding Season

Changing leaves, morning chills, shorter days, cold rain and snow, dogs growing their winter coats. All are sure signs of fall which around here means only one thing - Gravel Grinding season is in full swing. What is gravel grinding you ask? In short they are what cycling is all about. Fun rides that allow you to explore some back country roads, trails and even some easy single track. It is about having fun on your bike, meeting new people and just riding for fun. Gravel Grinders leads you to places where fewer people dare to venture and in general slows you down and allows you to enjoy life.Two fun rides this week are planned. Wednesday the full moon will be out and we celebrate with the Full Moon Monty. Saturday is the Gardner Wind Howler.
