Hello and welcome to Macadam Grinding’s About Me (aka GravelNut) page.

For a full low down on my bike history I suggest checking out my post “Gravel Grinding”


I started this website so I could write about my passion for riding my bike on gravel roads. I also like to take photos and every once and a while one comes out half decent and so I thought it would be nice to have a site to showcase them on…

This site is not about having the nicest, fastest, or most expensive bike – there are plenty of venues for that. For now I am content to share my experiences as I go from out of shape and over weight to a gravel racing (and maybe even gravel winning) machine. 


I have created several “categories” for this website:

Musings – Think me on a soap box.

Gear – This is stuff that I use, like, or maybe even am warning others away from…

Nutrition & Training – There is a lot of information out there on this stuff. A lot of it is confusing. I do not profess to have all the right answer. Shoot I may even be wrong. Either way I will share it here with y’all and let you decide where to go from there.


Feel free to drop me a message on my Facebook page here too if you would like.
