Gravel Rides

Rides that are more than road rides. They may include bike paths, forest service roads, gravel roads and single track.  Gravel rides are categorized by style:

  • Roubaix – a road ride with some short sections of quality gravel roads included.  Best ridden with a standard road bike, given a capable rider.
  • Mixed – a ride that includes about 50% paved with some mixture of bike paths, gravel / fire roads, and possibly a bit of single track.  Best ridden with a cross / gravel bike.
  • Gravel – a ride that is mostly gravel / fire roads.  Best ridden with a cross / gravel bike or mountain bike.

We have personally ridden each of these rides (unless noted otherwise) and consider them to be the best of the best, 4 stars or better out of 5 stars.

We pride ourselves in providing excellent documentation. Our route description pages contain color coded maps by surface type, cue sheets, GPX and TCX files, pictures, logistics, and a written route summary.
