Sonder Winter Gravel Series / Hathersage @ Alpkit Hathersage
Jan 23 @ 9:00 AM

From the website:

“Sonder Winter Gravel Series – Round 6

Alpkit Hathersage – 23rd January – 9am

Join us at our Alpkit Hathersage store for the sixth event in our Sonder Winter Gravel Series.
It’s gravel grinding time… the Sonder Winter Gravel Series is a succession of social rides exploring the local area around each of the Alpkit shops in the hunt for the ever-elusive ‘hero gravel’.

This will be a self-supported ride, lasting around 4 hours and covering roughly 45km (dependent on weather conditions).

You will need your own bike; a suitable gravel bike or mtb with safety equipment, repair kit, trail snacks and of course your camera!

The route will not be marked but a GPX file of the route will be sent prior to the event. The route can then be completed with the main group, as a time trial or completely at your own pace – it’s entirely up to you. You’ll be able to thaw out your bones and discuss your favourite sections of the ride at the store afterwards, with cakes and hot drinks.

You will also get a series brevet card on the day, don’t forget to get it stamped at each event in the series.

All money raised supports the work of the Alpkit Foundation. For extra motivation join our Sonder Winter Gravel Series Strava club to help keep up your motivation through the winter.

Sorry, no places left.”
