Gravel biking’s early origins.

Re: March 14 - Big Terra Nova Clockwise Loop

A reminder that in order to enjoy some camp coffee you’ll need to bring a vessel of some sort. I’ll be packing both a stove-top espresso and a French press. The latter both for coffee and frothed milk. I have decaf and Ron said he’s bringing a couple pounds of high-grade stuff so we have everyone co...

Re: March 29 advance planning gnarly pseudo-MTB ride

If I had capacity to add a gif to demonstrate my excitment I would add it.
