Full Moon Gravel Demo Event
August 15 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us for a full moon shop ride! Bring your gravel bike or hardtail (or any mountain bike). We’ve partnered up with Cirrus Cycles so you can demo the Kinekt seatpost on your gravel bike. The Kinekt seatpost isolates the rider from all of the chatter and braking bumps, allowing you to relax in the saddle while you roll through the miles. YOU MUST CALL THE SHOP IN ADVANCE TO RESERVE A SEATPOST! 818-991-1572
Don’t have a gravel bike or hardtail? Don’t have lights? Well you’re in luck!
Our SRAM rep Kevin Hoard will be on location with several demo bikes equipped with the new AXS wireless drivetrains. Here is the list of bikes to reserve. YOU MUST CALL THE SHOP IN ADVANCE TO RESERVE YOUR BIKE. 818-991-1572

If you’re taking a demo bike, meet at the trailhead between 6:00-6:30pm to get set up with a demo bike.

ROUTE: Encinal to Mishe Mokwa and back.
ELEVATION: Approximately 20 miles and about 2500 feet of climbing.
PACE: This is a medium-paced ride, ie not trying to break any PR’s nor will we be doting along. However, you’re welcome to ride your own pace.
You must always come prepared with water, a helmet, as well as any protective gear you deem necessary. It’s a good idea to bring something to eat if you haven’t eaten in the last few hours. You should bring an extra innertube in case of a flat.
We always host “no drop” rides. This means we won’t leave anyone behind. We always welcome new riders however we do recommend that you have good bike handling skills and appropriate fitness for the ride distance.
Bicycling has its inherent risks, including serious injury or death. Your participation is an acknowledgment of those risks and an assumption of liability. Riding at night requires sufficient lighting. We recommend a light with a minimum of 1000 lumens.
