Gravel guru Nate Burks has released the tentative schedule for his new 2019 TAB Gravel Series. Per Nate, this ride is for experienced and novice alike. "If you are new to gravel, this series is designed to take you from short and flat to long and hilly over the course of ten rides. These are "no rider left behind" rides with frequent regrouping."
Nate adds, "There are many advantages to riding roads less traveled. Riding gravel is a great way to increase leg strength and endurance. You are guaranteed to see fewer cars. We will encounter roads with varying terrain, hills, the occasional closed road or bridge, and sometimes dogs and livestock. You will never be bored."
The ride schedule has been added to the calendar along with starting points and route info. These rides are scattered throughout the summer calendar so check dates and times to ensure you don't miss out.
