The V2B Gravel (Vosges to Black forest) is a self-supported, self-organized Gravel Adventure bike ride.

There is no organization behind it – except providing a meeting before the start and a gpx-route/track for the ride. There might be some unmanned control points in between.

The V2B is not a race, there is no starting fee and there will be no prizes. There is no time limit to finish the event.

Every rider is responsible for his/her own safety. Safety is first under all circumstances!

To finish the event, you have to ride the whole published route and proof it by spot/gpx.

There will be a starter and finisher list, published on this website, with all starters and finishers in order of appearance.

It is all about fun, meeting people and bike packing. Make it a race if you want but comply with the rules and do it on your own responsibility.
