“Gravel Cycling is an encyclopedia but definitely not an unabridged one. Still, the book gives you stunning visuals, enough stoke to last a lifetime, and valuable bits of knowledge from many of the best soldiers in the trenches of the gravel and bikepacking worlds… As a ‘coffee table paperback’, it makes for a stunning presentation of the gravel and bikepacking scenes. Combined with the technical and practical knowledge that you can access from this book, the value it presents far outweighs the asking price. The honesty with which Nick looks at the gravel and bikepacking scenes and the clear way which he navigates the reader through this book is refreshing as well. Would it make a great gift for the aspiring or avid gravel/bikepacker? Absolutely.” ― RidingGravel.com

“This IS the go-to book for your next adventure!” ― Yuri Hauswald

First of all I was surprised that is was such a large and comprehensive
book. It covers the major races in the US, with pro-tips for each race. The book also includes great tips regarding bikepacking and biketouring. But the images in the book is what really stand out. Great pictures, great photography well edited on good quality paper. This book doubles as a coffe table book that I pick up when I got the time to just browse through and watch the pictures and get inspired.
Can't think of any cons except that Nick missed my country Sweden in the book ;-) though to his defence we don't have any big gravel race here, that I know of at least. But this book has got me so inspired so who knows, perhaps there will be one in the north of Sweden in a future nearby.
