here'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!
