SO WHAT EXACTLY IS A RAMBLE?
Well, not your average bike event, that’s for sure. A Ramble is a multi-day event, with supported ride stops and catered camps. Each ride takes you through unique landscapes along challenging routes. The overall mileage for each ride is about 200 miles split as evenly as possible over 3 or 4 days of riding. We keep the routes to as much dirt as possible and cover county gravel roads, forest roads, and even some double track when we can. And the views are always amazing.
For the ride, you carry your basic gear each day. Because we’re taking you through some spectacular and secluded locations, the goal is to carry what you’d need to be self-sufficient for a 75-80 mile ride with the ability to comfortably wait for support if needed. Call it bike packing light; many return riders put more gear in their camp bag. On the route, you’ll see riders geared up for the full self-supported challenge as well as others in lighter adventure-riding mode.
As challenging as the routes can be, camp life makes up for it. Fully catered, Ramble camps are the place to come together and share the day’s adventure and a few laughs with friends.
The other thing you’ll notice is we limit participation. We do this for several reasons: First is the impact on the routes. 90 folks riding bikes on back and gravel roads is a lot. It’s also an impact on the camp locations even though we stick to campgrounds. Most importantly, it offers an intimate experience to share with a smaller group of like-minded friends but still gives you the opportunity to find time to yourself or a small group.
