Proper Bike for This Ride:  

  • If you're doing the Formidable Terra: A bike with knobby tires 32c or wider. 40c is ideal.
  • If you're doing the Formidable Pave: A bike with 23c-28c slick tires. 

For either ride option: 

  • Clipless pedals:  This ride isn't for everyone; we ride at a fair pace and aren't stopping a lot.
  • Spare tube or two – with all the tools required to fix a flat – or two.
  • Basic tool kit:  Self-sufficiency is the phrase of the day. 
  • Fenders may be appropriate, depending on the weather.
