All group rides leaving from Maverick Bikes & Cafe parking lot through the month of June and July are at your own risk. These will be small rides at lower tempos on both gravel and road. Depending on numbers that show up we may split up and go in smaller groups. Stay safe folks and get the shot.
Meet LoCo Gravel Intro Rides
Starting July 2, 2021 at 9 a.m.
Starting July 2, 2021; Charles Phelps one of our shop gravel junkies will be leaving from the parking lot of Maverick Bikes & Cafe for beginner lever gravel rides.
These are self-supported fun rides and are designed to be an introduction to Loudoun County’s historic and endangered colonial era road network. Loudoun has the largest intact pre-America dirt road network in the lower 48-states.
The rides will have steep hills such as Thomas Mill but these rides are designed to be no-drop fun rides. Because these are designed to be fun you can peel off anytime or stay with Charles as he circumvents beautiful western Loudoun.
Average speed 11 / Average distance 25 miles/ Ride at your own risk / Routes will be decided the day of the ride. Expect to have fun and to see some of the most beautiful countryside in Virginia.

Saturday Morning Ride with Nigel

Ride profile – Contact Nigel at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. This ride is always 2 to 3 Hours of Zone 2 base. 16-17 MPH average with a few short tempo and sweet spot efforts to keep it lively.
I also ride with my 11-year boy at least twice per week and other kids are welcome to join and normally start from the trail in Purcellville if any interest please let the folks at the shop know. We can tweak the rides to accommodate other riders’ levels and strengths if needed. Or maybe organize some clinics or hear from other riders on what goals they might have in mind moving forward for the next season.
Looking forward to meeting some new riders and also to see some old familiar faces.
