Approx 7000m D+
More than a gravel ride, a journey beyond — Jeroboam 300 leads you on the paths and dirt roads of Franciacorta via remote peaks and valleys into the sublime wilderness of the Lombard Prealps, and on to the shore of Lake Garda. An immersive 300 km, at one with nature.
In the previous editions the fastest finisher needed around 20 hours, while some took almost 40. Don’t underestimate this route!
Approx 3000m D+
Since last year the Magnum 150 km is a completely gravel route. Paths and mule tracks, from tasty vineyards to scenic lake views: all the ingredients of the other distances are here mixed in the right amount to produce a course that is fast and suitable for those who love speed on gravel, too.
Approx 1000m D+
Like Jeroboam 300, a journey of discovery but shorter, among the vineyards and hills of Franciacorta.
Amid a landscape of little-known roads, renew your excitement for exploring by bike. 75 km, a distance and time to find your own space.
Approx 500m D+
Through the famous wineries of Franciacorta, among its breathtaking landscapes and colors.
The 37.5 Wine Ride will take you to the most famous wine cellars to taste its great “bollicine”.
What does "gravel" exactly mean? Originally it was a road surface. Then it became a type of bike capable of much more than just riding on gravel.
Now above all "gravel" is a way of cycling: discovering new places & people and the fun on the journey rather than just getting to the finish line fast.
Jeroboam summarizes, in its four distances, all the possible approaches to the gravel world: from the most adventurous to the most "racy" (although not a race!)
For this reason, remember we will give very precise indications on how to prepare your bike for each distance as soon as we will have the final routes.
Not just riding, but also spending time with friends and other cycling enthusiasts.
Jeroboam events always feature an expo area and a space to socialize with good music and interesting stories.
A complete schedule of the events at the village events will soon be available on this website.
Cycling means burning a lot of calories and we are not convinced an energy bar or gel is the best way to refuel. Good food and lots of drink options never lack in the Jeroboam village.
The details about the village kitchen proposals will soon be available.
It is well known that there is no better cure for insomnia than a long ride. To sleep like a baby, but also to fully experience the atmosphere of the event, you can pitch your tent in the camping area, free for all participants.
The village will be set up in Via Verdi in Erbusco, in front of the Town Hall.
A list of the services and exhibitors present and a map of the village will soon be available.
Coming soon...stay tuned!
