Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbround Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Anyone in the Buffalo area know any nice low traffic road/gravel routes in the area?

I live just south of Buffalo NY near a shopping mall and lots of traffic and I want to to know if anyone familiar with WNY has some good suggestions as where to get away from all this traffic? Some nice rides on pavement with minimal traffic would be great. I'd love to find some nice light dirt or gravel routes to take as well. I think going farther south would put me in "farm" country which could work out. I haven't ridden in over 10 years and just bought a bike to get back into it and don't know if there's any good "gravel" types routes that people are using? I'm not too far from Chesnut Ridge Park which I''ll check out. Any other suggestions would be great.

Im from North of the border but recall Ellicottville area having paved and gravel roads that should make for nice riding. Tossing the bike in the car and going for a short ride to get out of town is often the best idea for city dwellers. Not sure if the website gravelmap.com is good for your area, though that may help.

Thanks. Ellicottville may be a bit too far. My riding will be in the mornings after work and probably on Saturday early afternoon b4 the GF shows up for the weekend. The gravelmap.com you mentioned does seem to show lots of possibilities closeby so Thanks for that!
