And You Thought Gravel Biking Was Boring?

The last few years in the bike industry have seemingly been just one trend after the other: first we had enduro, then we had fat bikes, and now we have gravel grinding. For those not in the know, it’s basically cyclocross for bearded beer-drinking men, just without the racing. 

Well, with bikes getting more and more purpose-built (hey, this bike has a suspension fork and frame bag big enough for an adult beverage!), athletes are certainly pushing their riding to new limits. Trials master and secret cyclocross ninja Chris Akrigg took his new Mongoose out for a rip through the English countryside, singlehandedly redefining gravel grinding.
