#coffeeoutside Gets Back to Basics
Join us for the final #coffeeoutside ride of 2022 as we roll through one of the tucked away rural areas of Davidson County.

On Saturday, October 29th, we'll meet at the Peeler Park trailhead at Neelys Bend for a social, casual loop around the mixed paved-and-gravel trails, then make a stop at the remote controlled aircraft field to make coffee - returning to the roots of #coffeeoutside. BRING A MUG! We'll provide coffee, some sweeteners, & some creamer. Mixed gender, conversation pace, no drop. Weather pending - keep an eye on the event page & the Bike Fun Twitter account for updates.
