Grava's 5th Annual High Tea Gravel Ride & Social Event

On New Years Day, we will be participating in the 5th Annual High Tea Gravel Ride & Social Event in Wilson's Creek, presented by Grava Bicycle Company & Luna Cycles of Lenoir, NC.

This ride will leave Brown Mountain Beach Campground at 12pm on January 1, 2016 for a ride up Wilson Creek Gorge to the community of Mortimer. After a social stop at Betsey's Ole Country Store in Mortimer, we will do a couple mile climb up Staircase Mountain before turning onto the name sake of the Grava Maple Sally bicycle, Maple Grove Church Road.
  Maple Grove Church Road, is a 17 mile gravel road that twists and turns down the ridge to Brown Mountain Beach Campground.
  This ride is purely social with multiple stops for drinks and merriment. Total mileage should be around 35 miles.

  Please join us if you can, and if you need a gravel bike to ride, give us a shout and book one of our rentals!
