During the course of a ride,  Louisiana cyclists Steve Spell decided to snap a selfie, because if you don’t Instagram or Strava your ride – it never happened. What happens next is almost as unbelievable as someone uttering the phrase “all up in my corn flakes,” and pedaling over twenty five miles on a full suspension department store bike with a basket.

No helmet, no gloves, not going 20mpg, no common sense, and turns back for the 25 mile return?

That’s why you need a gravel bike.

I’m having trouble deciding whether to go with a 650b comment, Specialized lawsuit comment or something about gravel grinding. Help?

Was it wrong for me to hope that protective mama gator would make a surprise appearance?

“What er you doin out here!?” Dude, it’s called SWAMP ROAD. It’s be weird if you didn’t see an alligator.

At least he took it all in stride and didn’t seem to have a bad attitude about it.
Hell, he has a better attitude that most the riders I know.

I think I would have moved the gator off the road. That size isn’t all that dangerous.
I’ve moved 6ft. Rattlers off the road who were heating up and digesting on the hot gravel after a nice meal of squirrel. Just pick them up with a stick and deposit to the side of the road so they don’t get run over or threaten another trail user who may be less than comfortable around wildlife.

Why is the alligator not wearing a helmet?
