Remember when just a few years ago Gran Fondos were all the rage? Well, the paved group rides are still a great example of enjoying a road ride with hundreds of new friends. However, owing to the boom in gravel bike sales (as well as fewer permit hassles and traffic snarls), the gravel race calendar has exploded. While there are hundreds of smaller events held across America this year, this is the calendar for the bigger gravel events that are definitely on our calendar. Remember too, not all the events are hardcore races – and even if they were nothing should prevent you from participating at your own pace  – just get out there and participate!
