The ideal bicycle for conquering these gravel roads is one that can traverse them swiftly, perhaps one with drop bars to allow the rider to switch hand positions and to hunker down when facing a stiff headwind. But, it should also have enough seat and chainstay clearance to run tires with sufficient volume to take the edge of the rough and rutted roads. The ideal bike should provide more stability than a road bike, but be nimble enough to make quick course corrections to avoid other riders, ruts, cowpies, and rattlesnakes masquerading as sticks. Cyclocross and mountain bikes are great options.
A big shoutout and thanks to Brett Kinsey of Capital City Racing for scouting out and creating an even better course this year to include more of that sweet gravel ridin' to the route. Download it, know it, love it.
