Having fun riding bikes at the Cycling Formula's Vermont Gravel Camp.

Gravel Ride Resources

Here’s a few nifty tools to help you find some local “gravel bits” to plan out your own cycling adventure. Go ahead and piece a ride together. Start on the road if you have to, then jump in on a fire road entrance or a trail at the local park and see where you end up on the far side.  Don’t forget to stay creative. There’s a lot more rideable terrain out there than you’d ever realize until you start keeping an eye peeled for it.

Ever see some power lines and wonder if anyone has ever pedaled down it?  Ever see what looks like a deer trail in the woods and wonder if anyone’s ever ridden it?  Then head to the Heat map to find out!  Chances are some crazy SOB has done it - and you very well could be the next.
