Gary The Gravel Grinder

Here's a project I've been tinkering with to re-purpose my 2006 Gary Fisher Marlin. Becoming an Everglades gravel levee rider and a greenway bike.

I just began riding offload a month ago. I've ridden a levee-road circuit around Sawgrass that starts (and ends) at Markham Park, the loop is about 25 miles with great Everglades scenery throughout and there's a 3-mile section on a singletrack path through grass.

I saw an alligator last weekend on the water's edge !
