Mike Gunday took a gravel bike tour of the Great Hawaiian Desert.
And he got to ride a gravel road in the process.
The tour ended up being a three-day, three-state tour, so the highlight of the trip was not the trip itself, but rather Gundy meeting with some of the people who are doing a lot of work to get the state’s roads in a better state.
“I just thought it was a great opportunity for me to see what’s out there, talk to some of those people, to see how they are doing, how they’re doing in the states and I thought it would be an interesting opportunity to talk about some of these issues that are affecting people in the state, the people that are using gravel bikes and how they make it work,” Gundy said.
Gundy also spent some time with a few local officials who are working to get their state roads in better condition.
It was a short tour, but it had a lot to offer for anyone interested in learning about some pretty awesome things going on in the world of gravel biking.
The Great Hawaiian desert is the largest natural expanse of land in the United States.
Its rocky outcroppings and sandy soil are an ideal place for gravel bikes.
But gravel bikes aren’t the only thing that’s making its way to the state.
The roads are getting more and more popular, and the demand is outstripping the supply.
“The demand for gravel bike trails has been tremendous.
People want to get away from the crowds and the crowds are just getting more extreme.
It’s been a lot more dangerous for the people in Hawaii,” Gunday said.
The gravel road tour was a three day trip.
Gunday rode on a gravel track in Hawaii and met some of its best riders.
Here’s a look at some of their adventures.
