Over the years it seems like back-road riding has exploded in popularity, with more and more gravel riders stopping by the shop each year. Ira, a co-founder of Breadwinner Cycles, is used to long hauls having won the trans Iowa race twice, along with a history of riding rough roads. His experience, along with the team’s, brought us the B-Road gravel runner.
