Who's ready for some adventure?! That's right, it's time to set your "Out of Office" and join us as we explore some of the finest gravel roads that North Texas has to offer as we celebrate "Bike Your Park Day." We will be meeting up at our newest location in Mckinney on Saturday morning for breakfast tacos, then head out for a casual 50 miles, pedaling North then West to Isle Du Bois State Park on Lake Ray Roberts. Once we get there we'll set up camp, go for a swim in the lake, then have dinner and drinks (provided by RBM) by the fire. Sunday morning we'll get up and have breakfast and coffee (provided by RBM) before setting out on the 30 mile ride heading South, then East back to the Mckinney store. If you haven't joined us on an "Out of Office Adventures" bikepacking trip yet, then shame on you. We take it slow, regroup often, stop to smell the flowers, and have tons of fun along the way. If you're new to bikepacking, we'd love for you to join us for our Bikepacking Clinic on September 19th 2018, and also know that there will be a shuttle for those that don't have the ability to carry all of their gear. Simply show up with your bike, tent, sleeping bag and gear. Throw your gear on the shuttle and it will be at the campsite when you arrive. We hope can join us!
