    South Florida levee Gravel Riding - Whats your wheel/tire set-up?

    Looking to get into the gravel scene in south florida in the levee system through the everglades. Looks to be growing in popularity and I've taken my mountain bike out there a few times.

    What wheel / tire set-up are you running on your gravel bikes out there?

    Any other tips on where to ride in the levee system?

    I saw what looked like 700c x40 or so but did see some 650b set-ups with wider tires too.

    Logged many miles on 700x37c WTB Riddlers without any issues. They roll super fast and have enough of a cornering knob to keep you out of trouble.

    700 x 38c Panaracer Gravel Kings. Tubeless, 30-40# depending on your weight. Ridden from Martin county down to Markham park on the levees, that setup worked good for me.

    Thanks guys. I ended up getting some Vittoria Tereno dry 700x38. They seem to be just about ideal for the hard pack out there.

    Any group rides ever on the levees? Id be interested.
