See, I think this is the kind of response I was hoping for, a logical explanation of why someone would choose to ride just any old road. It's not my cup of tea, but I can respect it. After all, we're...

That's definitely what I tend to do. My routes are usually pretty unique. My preferences are more towards more rural, rugged, twisty, hilly. Fortunately I have a vast library of the types of roads I...

How do terrible roads become popular cycling routes?

So this has been a topic I've been mulling over for a very long time. My background is in mountain biking and in the last year I've been doing a lot of gravel riding. I'm not a super competitive...

I've actually begun to think that some form of minimalist suspension will become the norm on most (non-racing intended) gravel bikes in the next few years. For the average person there really isn't...

I will generally use RWGPS but will also consult the google when necessary. In the ~100 mile radius around where I live there is a lot of really bad map data; often times with roads being a hundred...
