"Keep 'Er Moving"
For a great gravel ride that’s a couple hours long with a variety of terrain and scenery, I like the Lester Road—Beaver Creek—Balky Hill loop.
A few tech tips: Wipe your chain before and after lubing to keep your drive train clean. A dirty drive train wears faster and doesn’t shift as smoothly. Before each ride, bounce your bike on the road or trail lightly and listen. You’ll hear if your headset is loose, whether your quick releases are loose, or if you have a flat tire. Check your tire pressure before every ride. Properly inflated tires last longer, are faster, and more comfortable.
