Grinding gravel in November? Um, OK.
Grinding gravel in November from a brewery serving craft beer and gourmet food? OK, you’ve got my attention . . .
Grinding gravel in November for a great cause? Now THAT’s a winning combo!
Join the Mohawk Hudson Cycling Club for our first Gravel Gobbler ride on Saturday, November 17, to benefit the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. With two gravel rides of 22 and 38 miles, plus a road route of 31 miles, you’re sure to find the perfect loop. Pedal through the rolling countryside around Nassau, New York, and cruise quiet roads past farms, scenic vistas, and country estates.
Start and finish your ride at S&S Farm Brewery in Nassau. After you finish, enjoy a craft beer and great food selections from Gourmeli’s Taste food truck. Remember to bring some extra cash for your beer and food.
Registration is $25 per rider and is tax deductible. Plus S&S Farm Brewery also will also donate a portion of the evening’s receipts to the Food Bank.

About S&S Farm Brewery
S&S (Sanford and Sentz) Farm Brewery has grown from a small family farm that has been owned and operated by the Sanford family since the 1800s. Over the years, the farm has evolved from a multi-faceted production farm to a dairy, and now, to a farm brewery. S&S is currently in the process of growing its farm operation, as they are increasingly incorporating their own ingredients into their beer while continuing to support New York State farm businesses. The result? New York brewed beer with a taste that can’t be duplicated anywhere else! Visit them at http://sandsbrewery.com/blog/
