Summer ride & Event schedule
Smooth group Ride
Every third Saturday, starting May 19th going until September 22nd is the smooth ride. Leaving at 6pm from the shop.
These rides are on pavement/smooth surfaces, do-able on any bike and with any skill level! Rides range from 10-20 miles. *no ride on June 23rd, as we will be doing the Swift Campout!
Fat Tire Group Ride
Every fourth Saturday, starting May 26th going until September 29th will be the fat tire group ride, also leaving at 6pm from the shop. These rides are primarily off-pavement, geared toward bikes with wider than 40mm or so tires. This is not purely a trail ride! for that, check out The Broken Spoke mountain bike ride . We want it to be fun on a cross/gravel/non-suspended whatever bike too. If your unsure, bring the fattest tires you have and go from there! Rides range from 10-25mi.
*We leave promptly from The Recyclery at 6pm. Both rides are self-supported, meaning you need to bring your own snacks, water, spare parts/tools etc.-whatever you need for the whole ride. If your unsure of what to bring or need certain things, get in touch. Both rides are NO DROP. Meaning we'll adapt the ride to the ability of the group, and no one is getting left behind. If your unsure about coming on a ride, or which one to go on, we'd rather you come and test the waters!
Tour de Forts
This is our grand shindig of the Summer, don't miss it! for more info, see the Tour de Forts page.
On June 23rd, The Recyclery will be doing a Swift Campout overnighter instead of the fat tire ride.
The campout route can be found here, and is approximately half paved half gravel road. Meeting outside the Disco Bay Detour at 2pm, rolling out at 2:30pm. This ride is self-supported, meaning nobody is responsible for anything at any point besides you. We're just inviting you all to come ride bikes with us. If you have any questions about what that means, or what to bring get in touch!
We'll be camping at the lovely Dungeness Forks campground, and riding the loop clockwise. If you plan on coming we suggest a donation of $5 to cover campsite fees. Parking is marked on the route map, and can be found in either the dirt lot next to Fat Smitty's, or by the old trains. If you park by the old trains (now Discovery Bay Cannabis) please park south of the black car that's been sitting there for some time, and respect the private parking signs next door. There is no running water at the Campground, so bring some sorta water filter! being a self-supported ride, your on your own for food (so bring a friend and pair up for dinner!). PLEASE RSVP on the facebook event page so we can gauge how many folks are joining! SEE YOU THERE!!!
