Around the Rock Solstice Ride

This is an annual ‘RIDE’ of passage leaving from Fitzgerald’s Bicycles each year on the Solstice Weekend. We’ll head clockwise around The Rock (The Grand Teton) on a 50/50 mix of gravel and pavement. 154 miles, 6000 feet of climbing and TOTALLY doable for the average fit rider.  Whether you Ride for speed or ride for the accomplishment it doesn’t matter. The beers taste just as good after!

This year’s ride starts at 6am on Saturday June 21st from Fitzgerald’s Bicycles!
