Grab your gravel bike, come with friends and enjoy the experience!

This year we are planning on 26-27 August a Gravel Overnighter in Poland. We will start together. But everyone can ride his own speed and some small groups will form from experience. In Poland a biwack place at a lake is our destination.

What does it cost?
Thanks to our sponsors we can offer you the whole thing for free. However, we ask you to send a donation (amount of your choice) to >>worldbicyclerelief<< . Just send us the screenshot or the donation receipt by mail. Then you will get the track from us.


Saturday // Aug 26

We meet at 9:30h at the 8bar bikes showroom, have a coffee and go by bike to S Straussberg. The total length will be around 120km. If 80km of gravel adventure is enough for you, meet us at S Straussberg at 12:00h.

Sunday // Aug 27

After breakfast we head back to Berlin. The route has a total of about 100km. You have the possibility to take the RB in Werneuchen or the S-Bahn from Ahrensfelde. Then the route is only 70 or 85km long.

You can pick up your luggage at the 8bar showroom from 12:00-16:00h. Alternatively, you can pick up your luggage on Monday between 11:00h-15:00h.

ROUTES & GENERAL INFORMATION:

We have chosen a route that goes as far as possible off the beaten track. 

The route is not closed or secured by marshals at any moment. The route will consist of a mixture of asphalt, gravel, forest paths and easy trails. A gravel or cyclocross bike is best suited for these trails. The routes will be sent to all registered participants* via email as a GPX file shortly before the event.

  • Drinking water
  • Barbecue (no food included)
  • Luggage transport (from 8bar showroom & S Straussberg possible)
