Pirate Cycling League’s Tour Of Dirt Roads

Pirate Cycling League’s Tour Of Dirt Roads

Each Spring, Pirate Cycling League has mapped out a course incorporating some of the less-traveled gravel and minimum maintenance roads (MMR’s) in the surrounding counties and set aside a day to celebrate them with our friends. This years event will  take place on Saturday, May 9.

It’s not a race, it’s an adventure. And we’d love to have you join us – everyone is welcome. There’s no entry fee (which is one reason we offer an unconditional money-back guarantee that you’ll have a great time).

But you will want to come prepared with all the gear you need (it is springtime in Nebraska, after all) and some doubloons (or some currency) to use as barter for replenishment – and for post-ride (last year we confirmed  that grog DOES flow in the quiet hamlet of Palmyra).

Discuss and share your questions or thoughts about this ride on the Tour Of Dirt Roads thread on the Riding Gravel Forum hpcl-skull-crossbonesere.
