Group Ride Details:

What are we?
Although not a race, the 1st annual Broken Spoke Challenge (BS for short) is a Dirt/ Road cycling event that most closely resembles a gravel grinder. Featuring some of the most scenic, never ridden and dare we say beautiful (er painful) aspects of West Ventura County. With a neutral roll out starting at the local favorite Madewest Brewery, this challenge boasts just under 80 miles of road/ mountain/ sandy (and perhaps muddy) fun with 7600+ feet of climbing. There will be BS Zones out on route to further break your spirit....we mean increase the fun, where if you fail the challenge, more pain... er we mean a more "complete experience" will ensue! Don't miss out on the 1st Annual Broken Spoke Challenge!

What kind of bike should you ride?
Not a road bike!

The perfect ride is a rocket powered fat tire full suspension road bike that is optimized for gravel, road and deep sand.... Oh you don't got one of those either? Bring what you got. Hardtail 29'er, Gravel Bike, Fat bike, Single speed, Full suspension, 650b, etc...everyone will have an advantage, or disadvantage if you are a glass half empty person.....don't bring road bikes though, that would be dumb. Nuff said.

With several parts of the course challenging your mental and physical fortitude, it is our goal for you to utter to yourself at least once....."This is BS!!!"
