The 5th Annual High Tea Gravel Ride

The 5th Annual High Tea Ride is on! This is our way to ring in the New Year with a low stress dirt road ride, potluck, with a little hair of the dog thrown in for good measure! 

Two routes for you to choose from:

 

BOTH rides start and end at Betsey's Ole Country Store where we gather around the fire pit, eat, drink, and be merry!

Cost for the ride is a food or drink to share with the group. Be forewarned - this ride came from a tradition of one upsmanship on cold gravel rides years ago, where we tried to outdo each other with our food and drink offerings. Bring your cooking/mixology A game!
