Gravel biking: the road to hidden gems
Gravelbiking is all about, fun, relaxing on your bike, discovering abandoned places in nature you perhaps never thought you would find, let alone experience on a bike. And not only those far away, but oftentimes just around the corner, just outside your cities' limits, in a nearby forest or along a lake very close by. Hidden, magical places just waiting to be discovered. Threading your way through the trees along unpaved roads and trails you, just you, the sound of your tires and the music of nature in your ears. That's what gravel riding, gravel biking or graveling is all about and so much more ...
Off the beaten, or paved path
They have been around for decades, centuries sometimes, those beautiful unpaved stretches, often hidden deeper in nature. Some have been ignored by asphalt, forgotten by planning commissions because they are the path less trodden. They are the old, sometimes even ancient paths that are now places where you can get away from traffic and experience something new. Paths where racing bikes are not really comfortable to ride and sometimes too far for mountain bikes. Smooth-rolling gravel paths, singletrack trails, forest lanes, fire roads, old railway lines, blown-out jeep tracks, mountain paths, or sand bogs - whatever you want. Fortunately, there are still many of these routes all around you. You just have to find them.
