This week we're talking gravel, is it the 'new road'? We're seeing more and more people heading offroad on gravel/allroad/smart casual bikes, so have we hit the point where gravel is actually going to overtake road in terms of popularity?

This week in the world of cycling, we saw the first ever women’s road race take place in Saudi Arabia with 47 women competing in a 10km race in the city of Jeddah. Women have only been allowed to ride bikes in public since 2013 so this is another small, yet hopeful, step forward for women in an extremely conservative nation.
We've also got someone who has literally reinvented the wheel, and a Russian man fined for damaging a pothole!
There's another GCN Club update, with the first founders socks spotted out in the world!
