Derby Gravel Grinder

Gravel riding is one of the fastest-growing styles of cycling, and for good reason: it takes riders off-road, but not too far. Gravel roads are less trafficked, more scenic, and often a little more technically challenging. Choose between an 11 mile or 24 mile ride. (Both the Tour De Derby and Gavel Grinder will leave from Derby Police Station. In the case of inclement weather, the ride will be canceled.)
