We roadies like silky smooth tarmac roads to gracefully glide along at speed. Unfortunately, outside of Ollie’s dream ride, that’s not always the case. That being said, if you do take a wrong turn, or you accidentally include some gravel on your route, there’s no need to panic! Manon and Hank are here to let us in on a few tips for riding your road bike on gravel, so you might even choose it on purpose in the future!
