Most link to RidewithGPS but blatant copying of routes created by Gravel Cyclist to another website will be treated as a copyright violation. To those good folks who love to ride the gravelly road less traveled, please enjoy, but do refrain from creating countless copies of these routes on RidewithGPS… download the original and go ride!

If you choose to ride any of these routes, be thankful for the work that went into creating them. In terms of the Gainesville area routes, they were established over a period of 15 years, and in many cases, JOM of Gravel Cyclist has established relationships with local landowners. Please respect these roads, respect those who live on them, and be a good person.

This isn’t a list of every route we have ever ridden, far from it, but this page will feature some of the fixture routes in the USA home base of Gravel Cyclist HQ, Gainesville, Florida. Additional Florida routes are linked below including other states. More routes will be added over time.

For those routes that were not designed by Gravel Cyclist, appropriate credit is given. Please remember you ride these routes at your own risk. Gravel Cyclist LLC is in no way responsible for your safety and well-being every time you kit up and go ride any of these roads on the gravelly road less traveled. We accept route submissions for this page if you are so inclined, feel free to drop us a line!
