REQUIREMENTS

ABILITY

Experience riding gravel and dirt is important.  However, if you are primarily used to the road, come a day early for a prep course with us to make sure you have the time of your life.  We will not be riding anything technical, but solid braking technique is critical with CX tires moving fast down gravel roads.

FITNESS

This tour is for those who enjoy going long and hard. If you can climb 2000 meters on a gravel bike, you are going to have a blast.

EQUIPMENT

CX or Gravel bikes are best suited for this gravel bike tour.  Although slower on the flatter sections, light hardtail mountain bikes can also work well.  Save a little room for plenty of nutrition, and a warm/ dry layer. Questions? We love those! Don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our guides.
