Superbe aventure et découverte du Gravel dans le Morvan ! Belle organisation, top équipe. Merci Aurel Orlane et Seb !


Fantastique opportunité de tester Gravel et de rouler dans le magnifique parc du Morvan avec une équipe GravelUp toujours enthousiaste et motivante. Le voyage était parfait à tous points de vue - vélos, sentiers, hébergement, nourriture, animateurs et participants. Tout le monde, des cyclistes sur route aux vététistes, a vécu une expérience formidable et est reparti avec de grands sourires, de nouveaux amis et des jambes fatiguées. Au plaisir de participer à un autre voyage à l'avenir

Memorable stay during a weekend in Morvan ! Both Organization and team were on top, amazing gravel tracks and great spirit and conviviality... A perfect getaway and shot of nature giving me the impression of having been gone for a full week when it was only 3 days !

Steve M. - June 2022

Au cœur du Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan, le van file droit vers l’horizon, avec à son bord les (futurs) aventuriers impatients de donner les premiers coups de pédale de ce voyage Up Morvan. Un air d’été indien règne à Saint-Brisson où nous arrivons vers midi. Les couleurs automnales sont déjà bien présentes et les températures sont encore douces pour un 11 novembre...
