If you are coming to gravel riding from road riding, it can be intimidating and scary. We get it (both Joanna and Julie come from a road riding background). The technique to ride your gravel bike isn't always going to be the same as riding your road bike, and it might not feel intuitive. Let us help you gain confidence on the gravel, and feel like you are taking the bike for a ride, not the other way around. We will share with you riding technique, safety tips, how to be prepared, what to carry with you, and the importance of navigation. Bring your sense of adventure and join us! We can't wait to ride with you. 



You sign-up for either the 'Shorter Ride Option' or the 'Longer Ride Option'. These are time estimates: shorter rides will be 2-3:30 hours long and longer riders will be 3-4:30 hours long.  We are limiting the numbers in each group so we can provide a quality, safe and fun ride experience.

The Red Js:

Julie Browning and Joanne Eastwood met over 25 years ago, both new to road racing and found themselves on the same team: Team Oregon.

It was the start of a friendship that goes beyond racing bikes: they are two red headed girls from England who have been racing not only bikes, but also as triathletes at an elite level, and then turned this passion into a coaching business to help others chase their athletic dreams.

It was a natural step for Julie and Joanne to partner to offer 'The Red Js' cycling camps, rides and clinics.
