Re: Taking a knife to a gunfight.

Ok let me re word that.

There are no good gravel roads south of the border apart from fire road double tracks and the odd stretch here or there.....

And there is nothing "local" to me whatsoever.

Re: Taking a knife to a gunfight.

Let's face it....
Apart from forest fire roads the UK does not have a real gravel roads.

I'm not a fan of the branding name of a "Gravel Bike" mines an "Adventure Bike"
I use it to get me to compacted muddy trails using quiet roads/tracks/trails quicker than I can on my other bikes.

What gets me is this thing you've got looks kinda exactly the same for £10. Stupendous.
It's not as light as 500g, but close enough for the money

outdoor exercise. This should be done locally wherever possible, but you can travel a short distance within your area to do so if necessary (for example, to access an open space) The above is from the top of page 10 of 22 https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/at...
