DIrty Twin Bridges Gravel Ride
December 1, 2021 @ 12:15 pm - 2:15 pm
Organizer: Mimi Graves 541-419-9616 Be ready to ride at 12:15.
Vaccinated Riders Only Please. We’ll meet at my house 64150 Tanglewood Dr and head out on Hunnell Road. Please park on the road in front of the house and walk up the driveway with your bicycle for intros before we take off. You are welcome to use my restroom.
The dirt roads are hard pack and smooth!
Can be done on a mountain bike if you are a strong rider as the gravel bikes will be much faster and the ride is 71% paved.
A road bike will not work on this ride.
Our average pace will be a moderate 11-13 mph. We will pause to regroup at turns.
Please ride single file on busy roads and double only when you don’t impede traffic and you have a mirror for your safety and that of others.
It helps to look at this in advance and print it out if possible. Send it to your phone and then download it for voice navigation.

Rain cancels the ride. Check Meetup by 7:00 am on the morning of the ride for any updates.
