Gravel Bike Adventures believes it is vitally important to include women’s voices in the gravel biking industry. Our goal is to encourage people (especially women and members of the LGBTQ+ community) to explore the power of the outdoors through venturing onto dirt roads. We provide routes, downloadable maps, advice, a platform for connecting to other riders and other gravel biking resources.
The tools on our website help to build community by giving cyclist the confidence to see what is possible, get inspired, spark conversation and ultimately plan their own adventures!
1. Help Build GravelBikeAdventures.com Beyond ensuring the future of our website, your contributions will help grow and improve Gravel Bike Adventures as a unique women-focused and inclusive resource for the gravel community. This ranges from increasing our outreach to quality contributors, adding new website features and expanding accessibility and reach to our target community.
2. Expanded Routes, More Inspiration, and a Bigger Community to Engage With We want to concentrate our efforts on posting quality gravel routes that are curated and recommended by rad women who regularly get out there and ride the dirt. We also want our routes to be accessible to everyone, and help riders feel connected, included and informed enough to inspire adventures. Your support and input will enable us to continue pushing our high content standards and expanding our network of contributors and users. 3. Banner Ads and Affiliate Marketing Isn’t Sustainable With ad blockers, insta-marketing, and the erosion of online advertising rates, securing banner advertising is challenging, especially for what many consider a niche activity. It is simply unsustainable as our sole source of funding. While we currently have some ads and affiliate companies (and we greatly appreciate our advertisers!), we make don’t make enough from these things to sustain the website in any meaningful way. Ultimately, we feel the future of this website depends on our loyal community of users.
