Gallery: The bikes of the Aggregate100

by 0

We saw everything from mountain bikes to well-used cross bikes. If we were to describe our perfect bike for the event, it would probably be a gravel bike, with 40c (or even wider) tyres, with a low profile tread. Gravel racing is still a very new concept in the UK though, so it’s no surprise that the vast majority of riders were on cyclocross bikes.
Here are the ones that caught our eye.
