Beyond Road – off road event
Marin Beyond Road
New for 2017 in partnership with Marin Bikes is the Beyond Road ride.
This is a new event to the Zappi Gran Fondo that takes in a mix of gravel tracks, paths and quite lanes.
The ride is perfect for finding new places in the Cotswolds that your usual road ride won’t take you.
The type of bike recommended for the Beyond Road ride would be a “gravel” bike. Wider tyres than a road bike to smooth the off road sections but faster than a mountain bike on the paved linking sections.
In it’s first year the distance will be a 50 mile challenge with a split of about 50 / 50 on and off road.
