Do you really need a gravel bike to ride gravel cycling adventures? Road bikes are really capable machines, just look at the pros racing Strade Bianche, and, with the right tyre choice, can be a lot of fun on more than just tarmac. In this video, Jeremy takes his Orbea road bike with 32mm slick tyres on the same gravel ride around Massachusetts he and Si took on last year to prove that road bikes are good for more than just road riding.
