First Snowfall of the Season

We experienced our first dose of winter today, but a dusting of snow shouldn’t scare you away from riding outside. We’ll once again be heading to the trails for our Sunday ride. The 3 hour ride will depart from the parking lot of the Daniel Wright Woods at 8AM and average 16.5-17 mph (trail speed).

If you don’t enjoy the chilly weather, you can train indoors at Higher Gear’s new Computrainer Studio. There are several ride options throughout the week, all of which can be booked online! For details click here

Events:
