Gravel rides or gravel grinding have become quite popular, with many road cyclists now participating in organised gravel events or races. Increasingly, we are starting to see more and more events include gravel within their events, like Amy’s Gran Fondo, Gears & Beers, and the Noosa Strade Bianchi.
So in this list, you’ll find a number of different gravel events that include pavement to gravel, dirt or sand. Plus you’ll find gravel rides and gravel events near Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. As well as in regional areas in NSW, Victoria, QLD, SA and WA.
They are all rides that you shouldn’t need a MTB for.
So if gravel grinding is your thing, or something that you have yet to try, then you’re sure to find the right gravel ride in this list!
