Grasshopper Adventure Series. For those of you who have never participated in it, Old Caz is an epic mixed-terrain "training ride" that follows some of West Sonoma County's finest backroads, fireroads and trails. Some of the strongest riders in the area show up to compete, but it's also a great opportunity for laid-back non-racers to enjoy riding little-seen routes with the pros and the proles.
Bikes of all types show up, but the consensus seems to be that
fat-tired road and cross bikes are the name of the game. For some Grasshopper rubber we suggest
using the Bruce Gordon Rock 'n Roads, which are fast-rolling on the
paved sections, grippy on the dirt and mud. They're even good
We hope to see you on January 19th in Occidental.
