Come Prepared

be-prepared-01Seriously, friends. Come Prepared. 

One thing we learned during our Gravel Metric Training Rides is that some people don’t really understand what it means to be self-supported. It’s means you are on your own. If you don’t carry common tools, you cannot fix common problems. 

Do not rely on us. 

If you don’t know how to fix a flat or repair a chain, bring the tools and ride with someone who does. “Coming prepared” can mean “coming with prepared people”, but make sure you can stick with those people for the duration of the ride. 

And if you are assisted, please have the courtesy to return the favor with some time in the wind, a reimbursed tube, or a beer at the end. Good character is contagious.

Thank you. Come again.
