Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

These photos from Belo Horizonte look amazing:

I'm in Brasilia. I'd say the landscapes around here are very similar to what can be found in the states of Sao Paulo or Minas Gerais (where Belo Horizonte is) except for bigger hills (might even say mountains) in the latter and some differences in vegetation. Thanks for the link. Beautiful photos indeed and a good read.

Live in a river town,few blocks uphill from this offshoot section of the Raritan River, which connects to a state owned 400 acre estate open to public (Duke Farms) and interconnecting canal paths. A few miles from the D&R Canal path. Mostly crushed stone with Mix of paved trail, cobblestone sections , gravel with a handful of simple single track detours, woods , and the occasional downhill access to bolt along the river on river rock bed.

"The D&R Canal trail is a recreational trail in the U.S. state of New Jersey. The 77-mile (124 km) trail is made up of three segments that transverse three counties: a canal towpath from New Brunswick to Trenton; a canal towpath/rail trail from Trenton to Bull's Island; and a rail trail from Bull's Island to Frenchtown."

Awesome pics of the CAADX! She looks great with those gumwall tires. Love the trail pictures too.

Biking in the Northeast can be such a curse because it's absolutely unbearable for 3-4 months out of the year.

@Esthetic those are great looking pictures! The family riding on the dirt is awesome and so is the information regarding the D& R. I added that to my list of trails to ride someday maybe.

Some ice on north facing slopes at higher elevation.












The Appalachian Trail goes right over the top of the rock formation in this shot.




This waterfall was way up the side of a very steep slope. I ditched the bike and bushwhacked up. Sidi shoes are not good for rock climbing.

I can't figure out what the green bike is though and your long list of incredible bikes next to your name doesnt have anything that seems like a modern steel gravel bike.

what is the green frame?

Ha, thats funny because I thought it was a Black Mountain frame based on the color and picture of him riding, but then didnt think it was based on the chainstay shape in the pic of the bike on the ground.

Again- you have a really awesome lineup of bikes listed. Zunow has always been a brand that I would love to have just based on aesthetics alone.

It was like landing on a feather pillow.

The bike is Niner RLT 9 RDO.

Man, Iowa likes to brag about having a ton of gravel to ride, which we do, but I the scenery is nothing compared to where some of you get to ride! I love this thread and pics!

It's a little chilly at the moment but I just put a suspension fork on and wanted to take it for a ride anyway. Right from the front door I rode up to a local DH area and down the access road and even a little easy technical single track. We have had some big winds lately and lots of trees are down.

Today I rode 47 miles gravel.

The route had about 50 feet of pavement. This was it.
