The ‘Nature is Bike’festival was born from a desire to promote gravel riding by combining a sporting challenge with a strong desire to reconnect with Nature.

On the agenda in Angers: the 3-day gravel and bikepacking Expo (24-25-26 June 2022), gravel rides (150 Km, 100 Km, 50 Km, entertainment in the camp, food&drink, music, innovation with leading brands and bikepacking Forum.

To launch the Nature is Bike gravel festival, the epic ride GRAVEL OF LEGEND (300 Km) is back! Participants will leave from the D-Day beaches very early on Friday 24 June 2022, cross Normandy and Atlantic Loire Valley and have to reach Angers, Loire Valley, in maximum 20 hours.

For the first time, bike lovers will also have the opportunity to choose the bike packing version of Gravel of Legend: a 2 day-trip with a bivouac half-way on Friday evening 24 June 2022, ending up the next evening in Angers at the heart of the Gravel Festival.
