Hey all,

I'm going out to a cottage for the weekend. My friend, being awesome, offerred to pick up all my stuff on Thursday so I could ride out on Friday.

I haven't driven on a gravel road, just a gravel parking lot.

So here is what I am mentally preparing to drive like once I hit it.
- Going slow is the key
- Stay away from the edges but not close to the middle on turns
- Not going at night

Anything else to add? Or experiences on gravel roads to share?

I rode a bunch of gravel in Quebec last month. Most of it was wet and slippery too. Some gravel roads (like Quebec) have rounder, smoother stone than others, so watch for that, rough stones are better. Go slow, take your time. Pick your lines as some parts of the track will be smoother and less rocky than others, basically in the two car tire tracks where you normally ride. Take the turns slow and upright, staying in balance will be important.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I'm not sure the kind of stones on the road but I will make the adjustment as soon as I turn on to it and see.

I will take a more up-right position and use the back brake more. Good call on both of those.
