Sunday Gravel Adventure Ride
August 4 @ 7:15 am - 11:00 am
Our Shop Ambassador David Bannick is leading the gravel ride Sunday morning. Meet at the dirt parking area at Wendy and Potrero in Newbury Park.
Meet at 7:15am and be ready to roll by 7:30am sharp. These rides tend to be fast paced but will regroup to keep the party together.
Route: Drop down into Sycamore Cyn from Newbury Park. Down Big Sycamore Rd. Right on Ranch Center to Wood Canyon Fireroad. Up Guadalasca (this is a challenging climb on a gravel bike). Down Overlook Fireroad and out to the beach. Then turn around and head back on Big Sycamore to climb the paved road back to the cars… or the group can decide if you want to take the extra credit return route: Up Overlook and down Hell Hill and the head over to the climb out to Newbury Park.
Expect 25+ miles. Bring plenty of water and food. There are a couple water sources along the way.
You must always come prepared with a bike in good working condition, 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.
