Riviera Events and Catering

Skip the lines and all the craziness of Black Friday and #optoutside with Harlan’s Bike and Tour & FAB!

If weather permits, we are planning a fun gravel adventure leaving from the parking lot of the Riviera Events Center, near Rowena, at 9:00am. We’ll ride for lunch at the Sioux Valley Grille in Canton.

The route is 31 miles (21 miles if you decide on the shortcut or 50+ if you ride back) and rolls through the bluffs on both sides of the Big Sioux River. We’ll pass by Stensland’s Country Store and by Calico Skies Winery. Will discover and cross two abandoned bridges and, depending on conditions, we’ll add in some off road adventures too!

Harlan’s is graciously providing a van ride from Canton for anyone who doesn’t have the time or desire to ride back.

Join our ride leaders, Jim MassaScott Bossman, and Art & Josh Holden, on this fun and scenic ride.

You do not need to be a member of FAB to ride on this joint FAB & Harlan’s ride, but please bring your helmet. You should be prepared for winter conditions and for rough gravel roads. If you have questions, we’re happy to help!
