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.

So I thought the road was going to be a significant paved arterial, and then I was wrong. The approach and descent into Moses Coulee.

Rode the New River Trail in VA on the recommendation from another thread, it is beautiful!! 50 continuous miles (point to point) of flat, fast gravel with amazing scenery. Did the full out and back two days in a row while visiting some family this week, my first gravel century(s).

Hope it wasn't one of you guys that had the KOM, sorry not sorry.

In standard size within the thread, so without the pic enlarged, it took me more than a few squinting looks to figure out what was on the road. Sharp looking bags- they match the bar tape perfectly!
Where did you ride to and how many days?

My neighbor Gary showed me some gravel roads in Ulster County, NY that I didn't know about. The scenery is breathtaking. We did have a cloudburst, but we were able to shelter at a farm restaurant.

Very cool! I didnt realize that you have a VO Campeur, I just figured that was your Stumpy with bags attached on the ground. As always- incredible pics
My family is heading out to the Seattle burbs to visit extended family in October and I am set on dragging everyone around to see as much PNW geography as possible.

Today I rode the "Cohutta Death March" in the Cohutta Mountains of North Georgia and South Central Tennessee.

The ride lives up to its name.

Well done.

Another picture from sunday's ride, it was unusually cold I'm used to temperatures around 20 to 30°c all year, that morning was 5°c.

went for a short 8 mile ride yesterday. at around the half way point i decided to check out the local cell towers. climbed 587 feet over .8 of a mile on loose gravel to get to the top. awesome time, that hill sucked, cooked my brakes coming back down, can't wait to do it again.

Phone died right after this shot, didn't get a good shot of just how washed out the path was. Came up just above the bottom bracket.
