300 km
Elevation Duration

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) Estimated average duration: 24 hours

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.

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!

Are there time limits for the challenges?
It’s a Challenge, not a race. The only goal is that everyone arrives on Saturday at 18:00 pm at Seehotel Hubertushof. But there are “opening hours” for the food supply stations on the tracks.

Can I just arrive to the start on Saturday?
You should register from 14:00 and join the briefing on Friday 19:00 pm. If your time plan absolutely doesn’t allow that, just write us and so you can have a short espresso briefing before the start.

At what time is the start for the 300 KM?
The start for the 300 KM riders is from Friday 6:00 am in the morning. Register and the join the briefing first on Thursday 18:00 pm. If you want to “enjoy” your ride in 3 stages and start on Thursday you can even do that after you get in contact with us under austria@jeroboam.bike.

At what time is the start for the 150 KM? The official start for the 150 KM and the 75 KM is on Saturday 8:00 am in the morning. Register from 14:00 pm and join the briefing first on Friday 19:00 pm. If you don’t want to rush, you can start earlier – many 150 KM riders departure at 6:00 am.
