As the popularity of riding gravel and cyclocross bikes off the beaten track increases, so does the sheer number of kilometres / miles being ridden on roads that most cyclists have generally ignored over the years. Lajos Kőves of Instagram (@hukovesl) is an explorer who enjoys going outside of his comfort zone.
Joined recently by some close friends, Lajos went exploring near the Hungarian Lake District albeit on a day that saw rain and plenty of mud. At some point, you get so dirty that you no longer care, which is certainly the case judging from some of the smiles seen in these photos!
We’ll be sharing some more contributions soon from Lajos, so be sure to watch this space. If you have an interesting contribution that you think Gravel Cyclist’s audience may find of interest, please contact us. Excellent quality photos are a requirement, the more the better!
