Most rides, as much as they try to be wel­com­ing to cy­clists of all kinds, will at­tract a cer­tain kind of rider. Fredericton’s Gravel Grind, which raises aware­ness and money for Spe­cial Olympics, is meant to be more about cel­e­brat­ing all kinds of cy­clists. “The Gravel Grind first and fore­most is not a race, but an event for peo­ple to ride their bikes in a non-com­pet­i­tive for­mat,” said ride or­ga­nizer Brian Mcke­own. The routes in­clude a mix of road sur­faces and trails, and are meant to chal­lenge par­tic­i­pants enough that they’ll feel they’ve earned a post-ride beer.
