In more news out of the Salsa camp, the bike maker is celebrating the culture of the gravel cycling movement in a unique way. Through grassroots and DIY efforts, the calendar of high-quality gravel races continues to grow, and so too does the number of B-Road fanatics that travel, support, ride and race together throughout the year. This season, at five events across the country, they'll be giving racers a chance to relax - if just for a minute - to immortalize a moment of their day and their participation in each of these fantastic events.
