FOR LOVERS OF GRAVEL ROADS
PERFECT CYCLING CAMP
Every gravel cyclist has high expectations and our gravel camp with its huge region of first class gravel roads, which is traversed in all directions, and with its pristine natural environment, is a great choice. It is almost impossible for a gravel enthusiast to stay cool, on the contrary, with a wide choice of great gravel roads, experiences and places along the way, it will warm the heart of every cyclist, or even “burn” them with a real adventure.
It is above all a wish for all lovers of gravel cycling to meet, hang out and exchange experiences. We, gravel cyclists, are a different bunch. We like company and exploring back roads, we love nature and good food means a lot to us. Gravel is in its essence a way of life and once you are hooked, you are done for.
You are welcome to join us at a meeting of gravel cyclists in a remarkable Slovenian ambiance, where a dynamic Dinaric mountain range and a Mediterranean breeze intermingle. Each and every participant can find a personal challenge and each and every one will add a piece to the gravel mosaic. See you there!
