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 will be some unmanned control points in between.

The V2B is not a race, there is no starting fee and there will be no prizes.

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. Ride it as fast as you can if you want but comply with the rules and do it on your own responsibility.
