There's lots of buzz in the cycling community about gravel riding. With new bikes that are a mashup between mountain bikes and road bikes, this is a new type of cycling for a lot of riders, with routes that are both challenging and scenic. And with the forecast offering plenty of sunny days and highs in the 50s, there's still time in the season to check these out—or to save them for your bucket list in the spring.

Don't have a gravel bike? At least two local shops, Sunnyside Sports, and Webcyclery, rent them. Or, hop on your mountain bike and just give it a go!



Linda English is known as "Gravel Girl" on the local gravel bike routes website, DirtyFreehub.com, which English started with her husband, Kevin. To see full route information, head over to the Dirty Freehub, where each route description includes photos, GPS files, detailed maps, logistics and more.
