HG Time Capsule

We can’t put time in a bottle. Thankfully we’ve made lasting memories together – and even captured many of them in photographs. Join us now as we reflect on the past eight years together – and join us as we celebrate our eight years, this Thursday night.

 

Our eight years at Higher Gear all began with Todd playing in the sand.

A few years later, Brendan couldn’t pass up the opportunity to throw his hat into the cyclocross ring.

Whether catting up or trying the sport for the first time, Gearheads dominated the fun factor at the CCC races!
