About Us

Steve and Phil are two dads who ride bikes in Vermont. They like riding bikes on gravel. They especially like riding up hills on bikes on gravel. They started GravelDads because it was fun. 

GravelDads is for anyone who likes riding bikes, especially on dirt roads. You can be a GravelDad too!

We have lots of fun things to look at on our website. Remember, always wear a helmet, and have fun on your bike!
