NOTE: This is an unsupported ride on rough roads. Bring an extra tube and the tools you need to change your tire and enough food and water for a 3-4 hour ride.

Equipment: Gravel specific or ‘cross bike with gravel/cross tires would be ideal. However, a road bike with road tires will work too. We’ve been riding dirt roads in Durango decades before the gravel-bike craze on road bikes. Try it. It’s fun!

**IMPORTANT: Our TOP priority is for everyone to get home safe and sound. If you are new to the group, please introduce yourself to others. Colorado law states that you can ride a maximum of two abreast if not impeding the flow of traffic, and you must obey all traffic laws at all times. All participants are reminded that riding a bike on open roads is inherently dangerous, and you are doing so at your own risk!
