Greg's Gravel Grind 6/26/2021

Greg's Gravel Grind

 If you want to learn a little bit about riding off the pavement this could be the ride for you.  Mountain bikes, cyclocross bikes, and city bikes will work just fine. Traditional road style bikes will probably want to have at least 28mm or greater than 1 inch size tires. This is a relatively flat slow paced ride of about 10-12 miles (2 hr) along the Kim Trail and around the Canyon River golf course on city/county trails. 90% of the ride will be on gravel surfaces. There are restrooms available about 200 yards East of the Higgins Bridge. No food stops are available on the trail, but after the finish the Saturday Farmers Market at Caras Park will be in full swing. This is a no drop ride so we will be stopping at key turns along the route to regroup. Bear Spray is not required but highly recommended. I have never seen a bear along this ride, but there was a bear by the Orange Street Market, Sacajawea Park, down Woodford St. to the University this Spring.  If you are up for a challenge there is an optional steep short hill climb up to the Milltown overlook, or a short optional ride thru a field on a path to the Milltown tunnel that is flat. This ride is designed to give people a taste of off the pavement riding.
