A classic win-win-win situation: one of the most exciting cycling regions in Germany meets what is currently probably the most exciting cycling discipline at one of the biggest cycling events in the country. At the Gravel Camp Rad am Ring, the gravel bike conquers the Eifel. For four days, the participants can discover the most beautiful routes around the famous Nürburgring on their daredevil bikes. Our tent city is located directly at the edge of the Formula 1 track, fully integrated into the cycling festival.
From there, from Thursday to Sunday, you can go on daily adventure rides, some smaller and some bigger, through the beautiful low mountain range. Between the Ahr valley in the north and the Volcanic Eifel in the south, you can really let off steam. And of course, the programme also includes a lap of the Nordschleife – probably the most legendary race track in the world.
Unlike bike-on-a-ring disciplines such as the Everyman Race or the 24-hour Race, the Gravel Camp is not about the fastest lap times or the fastest possible ride through the Eifel. Rather, we want to experience this fascinating world on varied tours, each in his or her own mode and at his or her own pace, have a nice coffee stop in between and toast together in the evening.
In between, there will always be the opportunity to watch the other competitions of Rad am Ring and to soak up the very special atmosphere of this event in the pit lane and expo area.
