Heads up! In lieu of our normal Thursday night gravel ride, we’re encouraging Y’all to cruise with us over to the Linn Area Mountain Bike Assoc. Annual Meeting happening just a few blocks from the shop at Iowa Brewing Company from 6-10pm. This is a great opportunity to meet the people making mounting biking in Cedar Rapids so rad while learning about their vision for the future. Of course, we’re going to ride there! We’ll leave the shop around 6:15. LAMBA
Looking for more awesome things to do with your Thursday evening? We’ve got you! Andy and Max are hosting Get Your Bike Rolling — a free basic bicycle repair workshop at The Hive Collective from 6:30-8 PM tomorrow night. This is your chance to learn some of the most useful bicycle maintenance and answer all your questions along the way.
Starting next Thursday, March 15th, and every Thursday after, join us for a weekly, gravel road group ride leaving from the shop at 6pm. All ages and abilities welcome. Plan for about 15-25 miles in the proper ‘no-drop’ fashion. We’ll publish the downloadable route before each week’s ride so you’ll know exactly what you’re in for. Stay tuned. It’s going to be good!
Wait, what’s that? You’ve never ridden your bike on gravel roads? You’re not sure where to start or if it’s even something you’d enjoy? This Sunday, March 11th the Gravel Curious: Intro to Gravel Road Riding event is your opportunity to team up with our pals World of Bikes, RadTour Bike Ride and us at Big Grove Brewpub – Solon for a free, hands-on introduction and find out what you’ve been missing!
