A first introduction at your arrival will allow you to familiarize yourself with your new companion of "gravel" in the presence of the guide and his wise advice. Don't hesitate to share your feelings so that he/she can help you understand the particularities of the Gravel bike. You will be accompanied by competent people to combine physical effort and pleasure.

Muscular Gravel Bike

Ride on the Graxx, the carbon Gravel bike from the French brand Origine that combines performance, versatility, and lightness (only 8.1kg).

At ease on the road as well as on paths, the Graxx filters terrain imperfections through suspension tuning. Coupled with a comfortable and secure geometry and generous tire sections, it allows for engaging routes to be undertaken safely.

Discover Origine Cycles

eGravel bike

On this destination you will be able to ride the eGravel HELP from the French brand Origine.

The Help is one of the most sporty and lightweight electric Gravel bikes that exists. It is the ideal bike for your off-road adventures, with a reduced weight that allows for transport in any circumstance. This bike retains the dynamic qualities of a muscular gravel, with its battery incorporated inside the diagonal tube for a total weight of only 12 kilograms.

Price of the rental on this trip: 140 euros to be paid at the time of online booking).

Discover Origine Cycles


The complete list will be sent to you a few weeks before your expedition. You will find here the few essential items that you may not have at home:

  • Cycling shorts with chamois to be more comfortable

  • Bike gloves to avoid blisters

  • Cycling shoes

Physical preparation

The territories we cross offer an environment that can sometimes be demanding depending on the weather conditions. We evolve in a mountainous landscape where the cumulative difference in altitude can quickly be important.

To fully enjoy this expedition, we recommend that you practice an endurance sport such as jogging, swimming or cycling, at least once a week. Having already done at least 3 hours of cycling will allow you to feel more comfortable and to better enjoy the breathtaking landscapes you will cross.

The use of automatic pedals is recommended but not mandatory, we allow the use of flat pedals. It is important to be able to stand up on the pedals in order to negotiate certain descents and climbs.

How to get there ?

  • By train : Mulhouse train station (at 10 am)

  • By car : Meet us directly at our base camp at La Bresse (at noon time).

As soon as you arrive, our teams will take care of you and drive you directly to our base camp where the beyond biking experience takes its full meaning. The disconnection can begin, do not worry about anything, we take care of everything!

For the last day, plan a departure from our base camp at 4pm.

ALICE G - MAI 2023

Premier week-end Gravel dans les Vosges. Expérience incroyable et équipe aux petits soins. Des superbes paysages, de la difficulté bien maîtrisée, et surtout de belles rencontres avec des personnes d’horizons différents. Ne pas hésitez à y aller seul ou entre amis ! On ne s’ennuie pas


1ere voyage sportif, il sera difficile de faire mieux à l’avenir ! Cadre agréable, logement confortable, équipements sportifs au top ! L’équipe Gravel Up nous a parfaitement accompagné et a su répondre à toutes nos demandes, besoins et attentes sur ce séjour. Les explications/indications sur les sorties étaient enrichissantes et nous ont permis une parfaite immersion dans les coins visités. Au-delà des sorties vélo, je garde en mémoire les bons repas, l’ambiance conviviale et les belles rencontres. Expérience qui sera à coup sûr renouvelée !


I can highly recommend GravelUp, great organisation, nice accommodation, great team! Thanks for everything!

Top team for a discovery of the Vosges in Gravel, invested, professional, and with the smile every morning!

Bertrand D. - May 2022

Bravo GravelUp for the impeccable execution! The destination is crazy, the environment extraordinary, but it's your sense of organisation down to the last detail and the gravel spirit you carry that makes the difference. Well done, the adventure has just begun.

Cyril F. - June 2022

I had a wonderful time with GravelUp! The organisation was perfect and the team very attentive. The cycling route was magnificent and several surprises made the stay very enjoyable (yoga session, visit of the forest with a specialist, visit of a sheepfold with cheese tasting...). In short, an unforgettable experience that I will repeat!

Thomas C. - May 2022

Congratulations to the GravelUp team for this great trip! Everything was top notch, the setting, the atmosphere, the courses, the logistics, the little touches, and the team was really nice!
