Gravel Social rides – NEW DATES!
Posted on: 03/01/2020 at 3:07pm
Join us to sample some of the back road and trail delights that are available to the adventurous gravel rider as we will be heading out on a series of Gravel Social rides and you are welcome to come along.
These are inclusive No Drop social rides of varying distance and challenge that we hope will be enjoyable to the experienced while still providing a great initiation for those ready to try out gravel riding in the superb terrain that we have right on our doorstep.
You will need a suitable bike but if you don’t worry. Summit have gravel demo bikes available for customers to try and these can be booked for the gravel social rides (see above).
If you wish to demo a bike you will need to pre book by contacting the store where staff will discuss your requirements and size/fit to see if we have a suitable model available.
Routes will vary but expect back road, forest trail, gravel trail and a little light dirt
