Rides and Events

Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. 

Our weekly group rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile!

Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements. We'll see you out there — and have fun!

Nov 25, 2017DINO Gravel GrovelNorman, INGravel Grovel has been called "Mother Nature's Cylo-cross Course" through the beautiful and rugged Hoosier National Forest. It's also an un-level, level playing field, for mountain bikes to battle 'cross bikes. A mix of gravel road, singletrack trail, fire road, and pavement mean that any bike could come out on top for the day; it all depends on the rider and the conditions. The 60-mile course is the original gravel road race in Indiana... and the 20-mile option gives a taste of the adventure at less of a commitment.
