Bruce Gordon came out today for a pedal and to soak up this amazing weather we've been having out here. He rode this bike which is about 10 steps beyond the coolest bike you could imagine. As I was pedaling back into town, he was heading out. Later, while we were both recovering from our rides with coffee, we hatched a plan. Well, he hatched a plan, I just happened to like it and agreed to host the event.
An event? Yes, an event at Black Mountain Cycles. Saturday November 17 will be the "Short Notice Rock 'n Road Tire Shameless Self-Promotion Ride." The gist of the event is we want folks to show up with their Rock 'n Road shod bikes and we'll take you on a ride perfectly suited for these tires - pavement, fire road, single-track, ascending, descending. Pretty much my favorite on/off road loop out of Pt. Reyes Station. Should take a couple hours. Shoot to arrive at 9:00 in the a.m. because the ride departs at 9:30.
Ideally, we want this to be an all Rock 'n Road ride. However, Bruce and I will have Rock 'n Road tires for you fence sitters. Remember, Rock 'n Roads also fit on 29"ers very nicely to turn your 29"er into a comfortable on/off road machine.
Bruce has invites out to area frame builders and parts makers. It will be a super fun day. I'll have some supplied beverages for post-ride enjoyment. I also highly recommend the carnitas burritos and tacos al pastor from the nearby Whale Of A Deli as the perfect post-ride food.
Get your Rock 'n Road on.
Bruce and I hope to see you on November 17.
