    Gravel Grovel

    Just learned of this event and it sounds like a blast. Has anyone ever participated in it? What were your impressions?

    Additionally, my only bike at the moment is a Trek 7.2 FX, which I use primarily for commuting. If I installed cyclocross style tires, would the 7.2 be appropriate for such an event? Would it hold up?

    Sorry for all the questions, I am very new to this sort of thing.

    Thanks!!

    Looks like a lot of fun. I think I'd rather ride my hard tail mtb on a course like that, with front shocks unlocked. But your bike should be fine with the right tires.

    Looks like a good event, I'll try to make it.
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
