Several of us from #teamoymbike journeyed up to North Carolina last weekend for ORAMM 2015.
This 60 mile, mostly off-road bicycle route featured 10,500 feet of climbing. (Mt. Mitchell peaks at 6684 feet and is the highest mountain east of the Mississippi river. The start/finish in the town of Old Fort sits at around 1400 feet.) The climbing was primarily on Forest Service roads while most of the single track pointed downhill.
It was a perfect day:
Discounted early registration for next year's event on Sunday, July 31, 2016 (save $20) is now open. Let us know if you are interested.
To get you ORAMM ready, we have tons of great off-road bikes ...
... and gear in the shop.
Speaking of adventure, do you love hills?
Our next Clermont training ride is Sunday 8/9/15. We'll be getting ready for Six Gap Century and The Great Floridian. Zach has arranged inexpensive, nice lodging so call him soon if you are interested: 561.842.2453. There will be a 7 a.m. start time with a two loop route to give riders a 38 or 75 mile option.
Love, Peace and Bicycle Grease,
Matt & Julie
