Women’s Ride and Workshop
We are happy to host the first edition of our monthly women’s rides and workshops!
This three-hour ride (roughly 70km) will leave from the shop at 9.30 on Saturday, March 30th with a mid-ride stop for coffee and snacks. After the ride we will be hosting a workshop at The Service Course, discussing a different topic each month. The first workshop will cover a range of tips and tricks from basic tire changing to deeper dives into systems such as tubeless tires and wheels.
Lockers and showers are available for all after the ride and before the workshop.
This is a free event open to women of all levels and there will be a support vehicle following the ride. We hope to see you there!

Alba Sunrise Ride
Alba: the Italian word for sunrise. Join TSC and Alba Optics as we get out early to catch the early morning rays hitting the peak of Els Angéls. We will roll out from the shop early, heading up the well known climb and on towards the Costa Brava where we will enjoy a little brunch hosted by Alba. We will also have some pairs of glasses on hand for people to try out and better get to know the brand and their offerings.

Boxing Day Three Loops Challenge.
We love to challenge ourselves here at The Service Course, so we decided that it would be a great idea to ride Girona´s three most popular routes in one single day!
We will start the challenge at 8:00am from the shop, with the classic Banyoles Loop (50.79km) before coming back through Girona at 10:00am to start the next loop. The Coast Loop is a stunning 119.89km ride out to Costa Brava before heading back inland through medieval villages on the way to Girona. The last and final loop will roll from at the shop at 3:00pm and takes in the well known Els Angels and Santa Pellaia climbs over 61.22km getting us back to town for between 5 and 5:30pm.
The ride can be divided into loops for those that may not have the whole day free and there will also be FREE COFFEE before each rollout!
Option 1 - 8am rollout for the Banyoles loop- 51km
Option 2 - 10am rollout from TSC for Coast Loop - 120km
Option 3 - 3pm rollout from TSC for the classic Hincappie - 62km
OR - Suck it up buttercup and roll all day! 232km and 3000 meters of vert!
Total 232 km
We added this fancy Bar Graph as well as some motivational music to get you pumped!
