It’s time to kick off the summer with our featured gravel rides. Check out some of the best gravel and B-roads Otsego county has to offer. Hang out at the shop after for free refreshments and great company! All rides leave Woodland Cycles @ 6:00PM.
Easy (beginner) Gravel – (6:00PM) – Ride at your own pace. For people who are new to gravel riding or want to take it easy, learn new routes, and enjoy the scenery and the company. There will still be a good amount of climbing but climb at your own pace. This is a no-drop ride. Refreshments after the ride. The ride is approximately 1-1.5 hours.
Expert Gravel – (6:00PM) – Faster pace gravel ride for people who have ridden gravel before. More elevation gain, but regroup at the top of climbs. More technical descending. This is still not a “hammer-fest,” but for experienced riders who want a faster paced ride. Expert gravel is a no-drop ride. Refreshments after the ride. The ride is approximately 1-1.5 hours

With the trails drying out, now is a good time to test ride the bike of your dreams on over 40 Miles of grade A single track just 15 min from the shop. Our local trails are comprised of rocks, roots, drops, berms, and punchy climbs to really put the bikes through their paces.

On March 14th, the shop officially turns 5 years old and has had some recent renovations to celebrate. I would personally like you to thank everyone for helping build Woodland Cycles as a community bike shop and for growing a strong, supportive riding community. We have come a long way since the spring of 2014, and I owe it all to you, the local riding community.
Thank you again for making this the best place to ride a bike!
