The SD-GRAVEL trail.
The SD-Gravel trail is less technically challenging than the SD-MTB trail. However, we still recommend picking SD-GRAVEL trails in case of heavy rain or unpredictable weather conditions. Don’t worry, both the SD go by the most beautiful points of interest of this trip.
The prevailing difficulty is TC; there are many MC sections and just a few of BC or push-steps to reach points of interest. The route consists mainly of paved roads and gravel roads. There are several sections of dirty road, country roads and trails.
The recommended bicycles for this tour are MTB and Gravel Bikes. City bikes with narrow wheels are strongly advised against. Strong tires and “short” gear are required for steep climbs. You can use the side and front pannier bags, but make sure to ensure them with strong fastening systems. It is recommended not to carry heavy luggage/bags while cycling this route.
The route has steep climbs and rough terrains.
