The Tour de Surly is an unofficial bike tour that Brent, Jason, and Kevin from the Peninsula store took on their Surly Long Haul Truckers (Jason & Kevin) and Surly Pacer (Brent). The trip was a Sub 24-Hour Overnight, to test out some new gear, and just have an excuse to get away on bikes for a while.
Starting after the store closed at 6:00pm Saturday, the group rode from Peninsula to West Branch State Park campground outside of Ravenna, about 25 miles away, using this route. After a meal of ramen and a good night's rest in their tents, they rode back Sunday morning to open up the store by noon.
