We had great weather for our first official Northampton Cycling Club Thursday Night Gravel Group Ride. With temperatures in the low 80s, it was ideal.

We gathered at 5:30 PM at Pulaski Park in Northampton. Our four gravel riders joined the Thursday Hilltown ride at the beginning of the adventure. At the high school, we split off.

Rocks Road and Nash Hill were the big gravel sections of the route. In total, we rode approximately 26.5 miles and ascended 1,250 feet.

Although we are planning a consistent route each week, the group discussed alternating the direction to mix things up every other week.

I hope you will join us in the future for the TGG.
