Gravel in Arkansas exemplifies why gravel is its own discipline. Gravel riding here is not just rogue road biking. Arkansas gravel is chunky, loose, and razor-sharp. The groads are steep, remote, and endless. There’s hardly any traffic or commerce on the gravel roads and they are often flanked by bubbling creeks or vine-entangled woodlands. The bike handling to navigate them safely requires being light on your feet over sharp rocks, having excellent bike-body separation and body position around loose corners, and laying down serious power to grind up steep climbs. Gravel riding here is simultaneously serene and rowdy.
