Event Description:

Join IG Burner Gravel Clinics – a series of four 90-minute informational sessions designed to help get you on the gravel roads once the snow melts this Spring. Bring a friend and enjoy snacks on us, drinks on you.  Plus, if you attend all four sessions, you get one FREE entry to the 2022 Prairie Burn 100.

November 14: Riding Essentials
@ Hometown Heroes 2pm-3:30pm
Learn what’s needed to hit the gravel including the types of bikes and tires that work best on gravel, a helmet, lights, our favorite weather appropriate gear and helpful apps (like Strava!).

December 12: Prepare for Takeoff
Now that you have gathered your essentials to ride, let’s make sure you’re ready to use it! We’ll help you make sure your bike is set to the proper fit, your tires are a suitable size and pressure and more. This is a great time for Q&A on tech specs!

January 9: What to Expect
As we dream about warmer weather, let’s talk about what to expect on a typical gravel ride. For safety purposes, everyone should know how to change a tire! We’ll show you how to do that and discuss the importance of the buddy system, how to avoid/deal with dogs and share even more fun happenins we’ve run into out there.

February 6: Training Tips & Routes
@ Solera
It’s almost time to ride! We’ll share local in-town routes and training tips to get you started and prepared for our weekly gravel rides beginning in March and the main Prairie Burn 100 event on June 11, 2022!
