What:Grav·el Hap·py Hour/ˈɡravəl ˈhapē ˌou(ə)r/noun

A monthly group ride, predicated on community building, garnering a greater understanding and comfort in absurdist gravel riding, and casual dirt vibes.

Gravel Happy Hour.

Come join the CSG crew every fourth Sunday of the month starting in September, for a day of Capitol Forest wanders. We’ll be finding our way through our favorite dirt roads, gravel paths, vague byways, overgrown single track, and nonsensical hike a bikes (they’re worth it. We promise.) to showcase our favorite aspects of Capitol Forest and help foster a greater comfort with the forest and it’s many, many, secrets.

These rides won’t be “easy” but they won’t be fast either, so come with a base, and we’ll handle the rest.

Rides will start at 10am, although they may move back to 9am as we enter dark season. Route stats (mileage/elevation) and start locations will be available 10-14 days prior to each ride, however exact routes are subject to change depending on weather, road conditions, logging, etc…
