What is Gravel? A Shimano Original Story. The Path Less Paved.

by | Stories

Shimano is producing some great inspirational storytelling short videos. The Path Less Paved takes a look at a few individuals and companies involved with the gravel cycling community and asks them to shed some insight on what gravel means to them. It points out the fact that up until the 1950s all roads were gravel … pretty much and we have kind of lost our way with road cycling and mountain biking taking over for the most part since then.

Well, gravel is definitely back. And the dirt and gravel roads around the world are open for exploration.

This will be an ongoing conversation as to where the boundaries of the sport go. But these quick short stories about what a gravel bicycle has done for people is inspiring.

As to what gravel is to me… Well, that’s a long story. However, that feeling of doing a big ride and seeing the countryside from the saddle of a bicycle on remote gravel roads is a fine blend of cycling of what is so good about cycling…

Thanks, Shimano!
