Gravel: The Ultimate Guide to the Gear, Training, and Grit You Need to Crush It

Bicycling Magazine,Selene Yeager

Gravel = everything unpaved. That means cinders. And dirt. And mud. And service roads. And rocks. And sand. And a lot more.

It’s the fastest-growing segment of cycling partly because it’s so easy to love.

But if you’re not prepared, it can be just as easy to hate.

You not only need special equipment, but also a different kind of fitness, fueling, finesse, gear, and grit. Bicycling Magazine’s Gravel! prepares you with everything you need to know to crush it, including:
- Must-have bikes and gear
- The types of terrain you’ll likely encounter, and exactly how to ride it
- What to eat
- How to train
- Where to ride
- And much more!
