Gravel Vs Road | GCN's Big Autumn Bike Ride!

Published on November 6th 2022


Autumn is a great time to ride your bike, its warm, often dry and not to mention the stunning autumnal scenery! Naturally a ride including some gravel is perfect for this time of year, but what we can't agree on is the bike we should use! Alex and Si right are riding their full gravel bikes, whereas Manon and Ollie are toughing the rough stuff on their road bikes. And Hank, well he's doing Hank things... Welcome to GCN's Big Autumn Ride!
