What I like about gravel bikes is their combination of road and off-road qualities.

I love gravel biking for the change of pace from road biking

I have never had a gravel bike, but I have been on gravel bike trails with a basic mountain bike and was envious of those who had gravel bikes - you can really enjoy dirt trails with full confidence on a gravel bike that you can't enjoy the same way with such gusto with other bikes.

I love the look! My current bike isn't any good on soft surfaces so switching to a gravel bike would be a game changer
