display_description "The popularity of riding and racing on unpaved roads has exploded in the last five years. With iconic events selling out in hours and field sizes for races in the thousands, the outdoor adventure of remote roads has resonated with a wide spectrum of racers, riders, and families. Over one-third of the roads in the U.S. are categorized as unpaved by the U.S. DOT, and cyclists are rapidly finding that the road less taken has fantastic opportunities for escaping traffic and discovering what lies beyond ones backyard. In Gravel Cycling: The Complete Guide to Gravel Racing and Adventure Bikepacking, accomplished gravel cyclist Nick Legan shares his love of this unique style of riding. Legans comprehensive guide to gravel biking and adventure bikepacking covers all the gear, bike setup, riding tips, and outfitting strategies you need to launch your own cycling adventure in the great outdoors. Legan shares colorful stories of the origins of gravel cycling in North America and its rapid spread to Europe, Asia, and South America. He speaks with founding members of the gravel racing scene and also looks at the cycling industrys adoption of the category. Most of all, the gorgeous photographs from beautiful rides will inspire you to seek out dirt and gravel roads near you."
