Grande Draille 2.0(English)
Let's ride together in South-Eastern France for 3 days on the 19th, 20th and 21st of September 2020 during the Grande Draille gravel bike event starting in Grenoble and ending up in Salon de Provence, following the old tracks of the flocks that used to travel between the alpine pastures and the mediterranean coastline when summer was over.
A Gravel transhumance, what is it exactly?
The itinerary follows secondary roads and forest gravel roads across the Vercors, Baronnies, Lubéron via the top of the Mont Ventoux!
You've got fancy pants or willingly look very "countryside"?
Your bike is shiny, greasy, homemade or chinese?
You are more of a sheep, a shepherd, or even a Border colley?
It doesn't matter!
If you love cycling, camping, making friends and you've got some legs, come on, join us!
