Climbing mountains makes you happy ! This second experience with gravel up was awesome. Another group, another destination, and I could find the same atmosphere that only the GravelUp team is able to foster within just a weekend and between people who don’t know each other beforehand !

This GravelUp trip was awesome...! An incredible experience of riding under the blue sky and close to the mediterranean sea with passionate people! Clearly the perfect break to disconnect and recharge the batteries!

One of the best adventures of all time... I participated in a GravelUp trip and it was AMAZING. Wonderful team, they really took care of us and made sure we had the best time. It was my first time in Nice and my first time doing gravel, and I really enjoyed it. Each day was a different and exciting experience with a good balance of physical effort, beautiful scenery and routes, and good company. Not to mention the delicious and healthy food from the region. I will definitely "gravel up" again for a new adventure.

A unique experience of traveling and discovering extraordinary landscapes. Nature, sports, gastronomy - a wonderfully balanced mix by the organisers at Gravel Up.

We had a lovely time with the Gavel Up team. Really nice people, fun, strong....!!!! The riding was great, bikes too, food and wine was always top. Meeting like minded bike people was also superb and everyone thoroughly enjoyed, laughed, complained at the hills and always smiling each day. Highly recommended.

I will be travelling again with GravelUp and highly recommend the experience. The program was a good balance of scripted and flexible, not too full, but with beautiful offerings.
