Hang Out With RootsRated This Summer

The 2015 RR Road Tour will be a 5-month, 20,000-mile modern day odyssey across the United States. The goal will be to connect—or reconnect—with many of our local retail partners across the country by hosting a series of pint nights and grassroots meet-ups. With these meet-ups, we hope to trail run, hike, paddle, and climb in the most beautiful places everywhere we go. When we visit your town, we hope you'll join us for our pint nights and meet-ups, so that we can get together on a trail or at a local outdoor shop for good times and good laughs.

Save the date, and come hang with RootsRated this summer. Have a suggestion of a place we should visit? Tell us where to go. And as always, meet up with us to find ways to get involved or feel free to take us out on your favorite local adventure. We'll see you out there!
