Women's Bikepacking Overnighter by komoot

GravELLE club Gravel Ride and Bikepacking Overnighter by and for women

GravELLE club Women's Bikepacking Overnighter powered by komoot

gravELLE club - a community of women, which is primarily about shared rides, adventures on and off the bike and the exchange - takes you on a Bikepacking Overnighter. On Saturday at 6pm we start from Zurich to Lake Baldegg (mainly offroad, about 40 - 50 km with 800 - 1000 vertical meters), where we make ourselves comfortable on a private Nomady campground (toilet & shower are available) and spend the night in the tent. Shortly before the finish there is the possibility of a detour to the lakeside resort of Baldegg, where we could also eat dinner, and to the Coop gas station, where we can stock up for dinner (if not taken in the lakeside resort) and breakfast. On Sunday we'll take a detour back to Zurich (again mainly offroad, about 40-50 km with 800 - 1000 vertical meters), where we should arrive at the Brunau area in the early afternoon. At the ride is waiting for all and it is not about speed, competition and rankings, but about the community and togetherness.

Sara organizes with the gravELLE club in the Bern area in partnership with komoot gravel rides and bikepacking adventures for women and from time to time also for mixed groups (+FRIENDS). With this it wants to create space for riders who on the one hand do not yet have so much experience with gravel and bikepacking and riders who on the other hand may already be very experienced, but from time to time want to be on the road with women only
