Welcome to ‘Macadam Grinding’!

I bet you may be wondering what the heck macadam means… Well, it is a method of road construction pioneered by a Scotsman about 200 years ago using crushed stones (aka gravel). Since I am of Scottish descent and I enjoy cycling on gravel it seemed to be the perfect name for my blog. 

And just in case you were curious it is pronounced “muh-khay-dum”.
