Off the beaten paths

Off the beaten paths

Leave everyday life behind and forget the time. Let your thoughts run free. Independently. Unbound. feel the nature. Wind and rain, storm and wet.

"The greatest adventures aren't always the ones in faraway places, they're right on your doorstep."

Get out of the daily routine. Get out of the daily norms and ideals. Just get out to a place where you can switch off. For many, this place may seem far away, on a beach. But for us athletes, freedom and fulfillment often lies in unplanned routes on the bike. Whether alone, in harmony with yourself or with like-minded people. A weekend, a week or even several months. Everyone plans their route according to their own needs.


Only the essentials will accompany you. The main protagonists: you and your gravel bike. Unpaved paths on unknown routes make the right equipment the most important companion. Bags on the handlebars, on the top tube or under the saddle allow you to take the most important items with you. Being minimalistic and finding our way back to ourselves makes us happy and content. The few clothes we wear with us are all the more important. Autumn weather requires appropriate clothing that does not make you sweat unnecessarily in warm sunshine and does not let you freeze through in cold rain.

Prepare yourself for the journey to yourself. Feel the nature that will accompany you the whole day on the bike. Which lets you feel that it exists in all forms. Don't let yourself get out of step and enjoy every second on your bike.
