PCR Gravier is an adventure cycling spin off of the French cycling club, Paris Chill Racing. The group gets together each year to attempt a week-long bikepacking trip. Last year, the crew of nine took on a 500 kilometer journey through beautiful Slovenia. According to PCR Gravier, making such a trip a success is no easy task. So, for future reference, they’ve developed a manual with eight crucial lessons for a quality trip. Watch it below, then scroll down for a few photos from the trip and a map of their route.
