Continue the fun on Saturday, May 18th, where we will start the day off at noon at the shop for an e-bike demo from Salsa Cycles, and then put what you learned the night before at the seminar into practice for a group ride to Farragut State Park, where we will be hosted by Salsa Cycles, and Shimano for a night of s'more toasting, and campfire vibes. Fun starts at 12pm for bike demos, and the ride leaves promptly at 2pm for Farragut State Park.

Two options for the group ride on Saturday.  A 22 mile paved route with 1K of elevation gain for beginners, or those just wanting a straightforward ride, and a 23 mile mixed dirt/paved route that will bring us up and over a mountain with about 3.5K elevation gain.  

This is a learning experience, so be ready to pack your bike, and bring everything you may need for and overnighter on a bike....FUN will be had!
