Gravel Grinder

24-26 November 2017 /

Overview

This popular weekend combines our two first loves: coffee and gravel riding. Our friends, coffee experts and avid cyclists at Rocket Espresso will be paying us a visit from their base in Milan. Each morning we’ll have the run of the Base Camp cafe to learn the art of the barista direct from Rocket Espresso owner, Andrew Meo. And after a tasty lunch, we’ll venture out on the fleet of Base Camp adventure bikes to experience the local terrain. Dinner will be a chance to exchange riding stories and top brew tips over a few bottles.
