The Inspiration 50 Fall Gravel Tour (includes a 25 mile route)
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. READ ABOUT IT HERE.
Now that we have all had a few days to catch our breath, it is on to the next gravel ride! The Inspiration 50 is our end of year gravel tour through the Leaf Mountains around Inspiration Peak. For those of you who just rode the Inspiration 100, the Inspiration 50 course covers many of the same roads, but traveling in the opposite direction and at your own pace. This is a ride, not a race. If 50 miles sounds like more than you would like to tackle, there is also 25 mile routes to meet your gravel riding needs.
If we hit it right, we should have some striking fall colors to look at while we work our way through the Leaf Mountains. C'mon Mother Nature, don't let is down!
Of course, the highlight of the ride, like any good ride, is the socializing and consuming afterwards. We are still ironing out the details on what that may be, but it will be something good. Maybe chili? Maybe we do a potluck? The only sure thing is the beverage choice. We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments on what you would like.
This ride is sponsored by Jake's Bikes, and Jake usually has a few goodies to hand out at the end. He is good like that.
We will have cue sheets available to download before the ride, so you can go at your own pace. The 50 mile route will go through Clitherall for reloading and resupply purposes, you 25 milers are on your own.
Please let me know via email if you plan on attending, so we can plan accordingly.
