A Gravelstoke + Thesis Event

Two young California cycling brands come together post-Thanksgiving to escape the hustling roads of North County in search of gravel. Join Gravelstoke and San Francisco based Thesis Bike for the inaugural Black Friday Gravel Ride (BFGR).

Location: Starbucks 2512 Jamacha Road #601, El Cajon, CA 92019

Route: We’ve enlisted the genius behind our GWR route, Roman de Salvo, to craft something special for this version of the BFGR. We will provide a link to the Ride With GPS route to all of our event newsletter subscribers. Subscribe here.

Time: We will gather around 7:30AM at the Starbucks parking lot, rolling at 8AM.

Gear: We recommend a cross or gravel bike with compact road gearing and at least 35mm tires. Some of us will be on a Thesis OB1, that comes equipped with WTB Byway 650b x 47 tires. Come prepared with your own gear and supplies.

Nutrition: We are thrilled to have Bonk Breaker as the official nutrition sponsor of the Inaugural BFGR.
