‘Tis the season for spring/summer event registrations. The Gosh Darn 5 Gravel Event is going down in Hickman County, TN, March 25-27. The Gosh Darn Gravel Gathering started in 2015 and has grown to be Tennessee’s premier gravel event complete with camping, bonfires, and routes ranging from 16 to 100 miles covering the state’s gnarliest gravel. The event supports the Oasis Center’s Youth Mountian Bike Team, a part of the Oasis Bike Workshop, which has impacted the lives of over 3,000 youth in Middle Tennessee. Registration is now open. We’re planning to be there and hope to see you! Head over to Gosh Darn to register.

Registration for Singlespeed Arizona 2022 is also open. The “family reunion” is right around the corner – February 4-6 – in Cave Creek, AZ. Head over to the event Facebook page for more info. We’ll see you there, too!

10 Days Bikepacking to the Mountains of Norway

“Family summer vacation 2021. In our family, summer vacation means packing the tent and heading outdoors. This year, we wanted to go to the mountains. The question was just how to get there. With the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus spreading rapidly through Norway, public transport didn’t really tempt us.

Living without a car, we would have to get there under our own steam. Our goal simply became to ride to the mountains with our dog while avoiding high-traffic roads as best we could. Things went rather smoothly half way around our loop, but then our luck seemed to have come to an end.”

We love seeing the photos we post here become illustrations and Lemongrass Ride did such a great job at illustrating Ronnie’s Duralcan cockpit with some new friends…
