Penn Cycle Group Ride Tailgate Series Gravel Ride Set For May 3rd
Penn Cycle has put together another of its Group Ride Tailgate Series rides and it's coming up Sunday, May 3rd. The Penn Cycle Group Ride Tailgate Series-Gravel Ride was set up to be a fun, challenging group ride to get cyclists ready for the Almanzo 100 coming up two weeks afterward.
This ride-at-your-own-pace event will take participants on a challenging 56 mile course with great scenery and plenty of climbing. Group riding with your friends is encouraged and bringing everything you need to be self-sufficient out on the course is recommended.
A minimum maintenance road with a 14 degree grade climb, single lane gravel, plenty of rollers and some great veiws of the Cannon River and Sogn Valleys make this a unique gravel riding experience close to the Twin Cities.
Riders will meet at Caron Park near Northfield around 8:30 am and roll out at 9:00 am. Caron Park will serve as the start and finishing point for the 56 mile loop.
After the ride Penn Cycle will be having a grill out at the park's pavilion with food, water and soft drinks provided. Park rules permit beer consumption (glass containers prohibited) if you would like bring your own and tilt a can or two after the ride.
