FranciacortaGravel Challenge

Gravel Rides up to 300km 20-22 September 2019 Erbusco (BS) Italy

Choose your ride!

The 300 km Jeroboam, 150 km Magnum and 75 km Standard offer a perfect blend of physical challenge and fun on fantastic gravel roads while the 37.5 km Demi family ride is open to cyclists of all ages.


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 2018 the fastest finisher needed around 20 hours, while some took almost 40. Don’t underestimate this route!


New in 2019 is the Magnum 150km route as a full-on gravel experience. Paths and mule tracks, from tasty vineyards to scenic lake views, this one makes for a tough but rewarding day in the saddle.


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.


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”.

Franciacorta welcomes you with sweetness, the ride is challenging but extremely beautiful! Do not underestimate it since it is tougher than expected! TAKE PART IN THE 2019 EDITION!



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.


Not only riding…

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.


Eat pasta ride fasta

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.


Recovery and more

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.
