Like riding gravel? This race is for you

Kinesis Bikes' Aggregate 100 ride over the weekend of August 6th and 7th includes four timed sections - as well as a pre-ride party

It’s difficult to find events in the UK that feature much gravel: they tend to either keep you on-road or descend into mud. But Kinesis has scouted out the best gravel roads in North Yorkshire for its inaugural Aggregate 100 ride, which takes place over the weekend of August 6th and 7th.

Kinesis says it likes to think of it as a less serious, longer version of a cross bike ride with a few hard fast sections thrown in for good measure.
