A trip that leaves superb memories! An experience to share with complete strangers or good friends, the time spent on and off the bike creates moments of sharing that help to forge or strengthen bonds!

Alice G.

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!
