This year’s Gravel Metric will be the first official event hosted by NCC’s new non-profit called AXLETREE ™.
ax·le·tree (n): A crossbar or rod supporting a vehicle, such as a cart, that has terminal spindles on which the wheels revolve. See also: Linchpin. See also: The thing that holds the whole dang thing together.
AXLETREE is the product of inspiration, aspiration, and strong legal counsel. We have wanted to create an organization of people who can represent NCC’s heart for advocacy, creativity, and community to a larger and varied audience. AXLETREE will be the organization that hosts all of our riding events. We also hope to gather like-minded people to ride and race under the AXLETREE banner to promote a proactive, creative, and dynamic riding community. We hope this group will help us communicate the needs and hopes of cyclists in DeKalb County to the people that can help us make a difference.
We’ll have more information available soon, but expect awesomeness. In the meantime, please feel free to “Like” AXLETREE on Facebook.
