BSC Gravel Ride Sunday

Post by shawn » Fri Dec 07, 2018 10:19 am

Hey, all. Broad St. Cycles is putting on a group gravel ride on the Great Trail this Sunday to launch a new relationship with Factor Bikes. Coffee and snacks at the shop at 9:30 before a 10:00 roll out. Two distances on offer. Come ride bikes with my crew, Factor's owner, and a local fast guy named Ryder....

Check out the event link or BSC social media for all the details!

Shawn when do you think the longer ride will be back to the shop? I’m trying to negotiate the time off

Hi, Rob. I'm not completely sure but the event is listed as ending around 3pm. Of course, these things are a bit hard to predict. Here is a bit of info from the event:

Two distances on offer:
1) 50km, 750m of climbing (Broad Street to the Great Trail suspension bridge)
2) 88km, 1650m of climbing (Keep going alllll the way up, descend down into Shawnigan. Back up Goldstream heights and bomb the trail to home)

Route details: https://www.strava.com/routes/16368328

Social pace. Hard climbing. Bring low gears, big tires. Snacks, warm clothes. Maybe a road pop or whisky stop for the summit.

Hope it helps and that you're able to get out on Sunday!
