The Bicycle Academy X Komoot - Gravel Social

In September 2019 we teamed up with route planning experts at Komoot to host an exciting 75km off road/adventure social ride followed by a chance for participants to see inside the TBA workshop. 

We spent the day exploring beautiful forest fire roads and single track - with a little bit of tarmac - before heading back to our workshop for coffee (courtesy of Roundhill Roastery), snacks and a little bit of brazing.

The route began at The Bicycle Academy workshop and included a really varied mix of terrain, you can download the route from our Komoot page although we recommend taking a pretty capable bicycle. A cyclocross bike, gravel bike or hardtail MTB would be perfect. 

We were extremely lucky to be joined by a brilliant group of riders including local gravel legend Katherine Moore (Katherine Bikes) and international gravel/adventure legend Cass Gilbert (While out Riding). Check out Katherine’s wonderful write up of the event here.
