The ideal bike for this kind of riding is a gravel bike. Most bikes made for gravel riding are designed to be fast and comfortable on unpaved surfaces. They have drop handlebars, disc brakes and clearance for wide, knobby tires. Gravel bikes are similar to cyclocross bikes, but they have a more relaxed riding position for long days in the saddle. (On these tours, we offer the Kona Rove as a rental.)
That being said, you can definitely enjoy a gravel ride on a cyclocross bike or a cross-country mountain bike with fast-rolling, lightweight tires. The most important thing is that you have advanced bike handling skills and experience climbing, cornering and descending on loose surfaces.
This isn’t rail trail riding — for the right rider, is both more challenging and more fun!
Due to safety concerns, we cannot accommodate e-bikes on our gravel tours.
Yes, but very few. Our gravel routes include some necessary riding on quiet paved roads to get from place to place. The actual gravel roads may have a few cars, but they will be going much slower than vehicles on main roads. This makes the riding significantly quieter and more enjoyable than riding on pavement.
No — a gravel ride is very different from a straight, flat rail trail. On a gravel ride, you’ll have to turn, climb and descend on rough or loose surfaces. That’s the fun part!
