Adventure Gear 101

Team Knotheads is preparing for our upcoming race on June 14th. We had our first trail ride last week on single track.  I’m not entirely sure we were where we were supposed to be but we didn’t get kicked out.  We really didn’t see anyone for that matter.  We rode for about an hour and ...
