Coming from the United States, the GRAVEL discipline is expanding in Europe for people looking for escape and communion with nature while remaining on courses physically accessible to all. The craze is such that most manufacturers have made it their priority.
With nearly 200 participants in each of the two previous editions, the event’s Gravel courses continue to build their reputation and are becoming a reference in the field. The support of the specialist Orbea, title partner for the event, accelerates this growth by bringing their expertise and improving the experience of the participants.
On the course, the Voie Verte Paris Lyon Marseille, its tunnels, as well as the kilometers of forest paths on the heights of the limestone retreats of Baumes les Messieurs still provide the same wonder. If these key points will remain in 2023, the proposed routes will change slightly. Direction the South of Lons le Saunier to explore new paths! A mixture of forest roads and agricultural roads.
A change of scenery guaranteed!
As total autonomy by bike (GPS track) is in full vogue, the organizers have decided to launch a new “ULTRA” format perfectly adapted to the terrain of the Jura.
NB : e-bikes (in hiking mode, without ranking) are allowed
