You may be familiar with the word gravel (“gravel”) or have heard of crossroad, where bike paths are mixed with gravel or dirt roads.
To this end, major bike manufacturers have launched a range of bikes that can handle rural gravel and dirt roads with their road design.
At first glance, a gravel bike looks similar to a regular road bike, but a closer look at the details reveals major differences, especially in composition, materials and functionality.
Gravel bikes are basically road bikes with the design and ergonomics of a road bike, but adapted to twisty and rough roads. They are more durable and rugged than a normal road bike and have a wider gear range and tire spacing.
The Gravel Bike Experience
These features make gravel bikes one of the best options for cyclists who love the mixed routes that a world cycling paradise like Mallorca has to offer.
At Emilio’s Mallorca Bike Hire we have a selection of bikes with these features that are suitable for certain mixed routes where you have to tackle rural gravel, gravel and dirt roads as well as asphalt tracks.
The possibilities that Mallorca offers to lovers of cycling on the rural roads are not limited to road cycling or mountain biking, but it is also possible to use an organizational scheme adapted to the different types of roads or paths, so that you can ride both sections with the right bike for both areas and thus ride different routes to reach dream places on the extensive paths of Mallorca.
