Jeroboam
300 km
Elevation Duration
~7000 mt ~24 hours
27 September 2024

The big, tough & dirty loop – for all massively mad riders who want to suffer. A 300 KM gravel journey heading into Slovenia & Italy over peaks & passes in the Carnic Alps, three alpine rivers, and four refreshing lakes along the route. Just make sure that you are lion-hearted, not stupid: it’s 300 KM & 7000 M Altitude!

So, it’s up to you:
1. fasten your seatbelt and start flying over gravel (not serious)
2. bring loads of mate tea along to keep you awake (probably not serious too)
3. plan your night’s rest in nature or find a fancier shelter (actually serious)

Magnum
150 km
Elevation Duration
~3000 mt ~9 hours
28 September 2024

Definitely long and brutal enough to be a crackpot on tough tires! Gravel roads, single trails, hollow ways up & down all around an iconic mountain. As a mustached or non-mustached Magnum rider, you will pass rivers, lakes & some stunning lost places in the Carinthian backland. Some parts are for speedy gliding over gravel, some for damning us and questioning yourself for participating! To sum it up: don’t underestimate 3000 m uphill on gravel.

Standard
75 km
Elevation Duration
~1500 mt ~5.30 hours
28 September 2024

75 KM packed with pure Carinthian gravel variety. A wonderful and punishing path shredding along rivers, pedaling through woods, pushing up hills, crossing a mountain creek, and nothing but good vibrations on two wheels. Unless you are a mollycoddle you will have mind-blowing fun between your legs – otherwise, agony will kick in!

All events take place at the JEROBOAM “Camp of Funhogs” – Seehotel Hubertushof, Europaplatz 1 // Velden am Wörthersee

We love to be easy on mother earth and don’t advocate motorized tourism. Life is simple if waste and impact are kept low. That’s why we try our best to organize Jeroboam Austria under the aspects of “reduce, reuse, recycle” and try to make smart and simple choices like certified organic shirts and food & produces from local & organic farms. We reduce single-use tableware wherever we can.

Location
The “Camp of Funhogs” Seehotel Hubertushof is a hotel that is 30% certified organic by BIO AUSTRIA.

Eco Travel
We also recommend that you take the opportunity to travel directly to Jeroboam Austria by train. We are located one minute by bike from Velden am Wörthersee train station.

Social Responsibility
At the end of the year, we donate as an association to several social projects and institutions – so that we not only remind ourselves that owning 4 bikes+ is not necessarily normal, but also that one of the most beautiful hobbies in the world should only be a hobby.

There are some tent spots available on the property of Seehotel Hubertushof and many more in Velden and the surrounding area. For support contact us under austria@jeroboam.bike
