Even though it might be winter time, that doesn’t mean you have to stop riding! Join Culpeper Cycling from VeloConcepts in Culpeper for a mixed surface ride every Saturday all winter long.
For our “winter session” our rides will feature a mix of gravel and pavement between 20- 30 miles in length through scenic Culpeper County. Gravel rides are a great way to keep logging the miles as a slightly lower speed which helps stave of the chill of pure road riding. Since the roads can get quite sloppy throughout the winter we recommend a cyclocross or mountain bike for these rides.
The ride leaves the VeloConcepts parking lot at 11 am on a rolling loop. But be sure to show up early because before the ride starts, the VeloConcepts crew will be providing breakfast pastries, espresso & cappuccino’s![box color=”green” align=”center”]

|When||Every Saturday @ 11 am|
Can anyone join the ride?
Sure anyone can join. Just remember pace is 12-14 mph on the gravel (which is like 16-18 on the road). CX or MTBs are recommended since some of the roads can get quite rough. And be sure you have everything to be self supported in case you get a flat or lost.
