On Thursday, June 10th, the Northampton Cycling Club is launching a new weekly gravel ride.
Juan Hernandez, a strong and experienced gravel rider, will lead the rides on Thursday evenings from Pulaski Park. This is a no-drop ride and we will roll out of Pulaski Park at 5:30 PM, so arrive a few minutes early. Please bring a gravel or mountain bike or a road bike with at least 28mm tires. Also, bring your flat kit, lights, water and snacks. Pace will vary as we ride both road and gravel.
As is typical for many NCC weekday rides, the route will be the same each week. The weekly route is 25 miles, highlighted by Rocks Road and Nash Hill. The route includes close to six miles of dirt and gravel roads.
We are also planning a Sunday gravel ride, which will change routes each week. This ride will launch in a few weeks, and complete details about the Sunday gravel rides will be announced on the NCC website soon.
After the Sunday Gravel Ride begins, the NCC will have ride options every day of the week!
