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 checkpoints 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 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 fast as you can if you want, but comply with the rules and do it on your own responsibility.
This event follows the basic Toby Gadd Rules, refer to this web site for a complete list of the rules:
– Self supported biking is just that—self supported. Do. It. Yourself.
– Move only under your own power
– Follow the route (even when/if the route changes)
– Ride unsupported
– Don’t break the law
– Respect the trail and other users
