DESCRIPTION:

‘A comprehensive guide to some great routes on gravel and road’ UK Gravel Collective

Round-the-world cyclist and gravel riding devotee Markus Stitz’s new book Great British Gravel Rides brings together a tantalising collection of 25 routes – each the favourite of passionate gravel riders including Jenny Graham, Mark Beaumont and local rider Aneela McKenna. Markus talks not just about his book but also the wider gravel riding ‘movement’, from its origins in the US to how it has grown – fuelled by lockdown – into an increasingly sustainable way for many riders to travel, explore and enjoy adventures close by.

Talk is Hosted by Bspoke Cycles, Old Tweeddale Garage, Innerleithen Road, Peebles EH45 8BA
