Riding on Gravel

  • Find the most compacted path or that with the least gravel - this will be the car wheel tracks. do not ride where the gravel is deep - where it has been flicked out off the wheel tracks
  • braking effectiveness is severely hampered due to lack of traction. Ride slower and have a longer braking distance
  • Unless you have a road/trail bike, try to avoid gravel if you can. It's not particularly bike friendly (and gets your bike filthy!)
