Will I enjoy myself if I ride less than 136 miles on gravel at a time? If I do that in 10 hours or less 2 states away will I be happier than riding 49 miles in 3 hours and mowing the lawn?

Does Strava work on gravel or should I write an app for that?

Are 20 mile rides dead?

Will my 29er frame be good enough for the gravel roads of the Front Range or should I buy a Specialized specialized shock absorbing gravel gizmo with 1x3 setup (trending?)?

Should I ride to the start of the ride or just drive straight to the after-party?

I heard fat bikes float over gravel, especially muddy gravel. I read that on mtbr I think. It also says that it's typically a gravel road with no gravel on it. Is that a dirt road then? Do I need a dirt bike?

I read you can ride a road bike on gravel until you double-flat. Then you hitch-hike to QT and ask to borrow a cell phone that appears to be a burner. Then you post online that riding a road bike on gravel is not the same as riding a gravel bike on the road. But the gravel bike is a limited all black cross-edition that doesn't have any bottle mounts so there's that.

If e-bikes are banned from trails can you race on an e-bike since they are allowed on roads? Will there be a charger station available every 29 miles or should I bring my Instagram account and do a grimace selfie 20  minutes into the thing?


This is sarcasm. I just didn't want an empty forum.


But I DO think the category is warranted especially when the weather turns foul and keeps us off the trails.


I just needed to poke a little fun at the Internet for a minute.
