More than just a Festival

The Concept

Nature is Bike was born out of the desire to promote the practice of Gravel around a festival dedicated to this new art of living. Nature is Bike combines a sporting challenge with a real desire to reconnect with nature. A friendly, fun event, with food & beverage, live music & activities. The Gravel Festival aims to become a place of practice, sharing and exchange that endeavours to bring the Gravel spirit to life.

Sustainability

With its commitment to sustainable, local, social and solidarity, the Nature is Bike event is resolutely eco-designed. This sustainable development approach is part of a dynamic of continuous improvement. This is why we are actively working to make Nature is Bike an eco-responsible event, through the implementation of actions like the design of the website or recycling waste.

The territory

Angers is at the crossroads of 3 cycling roads taken by nearly 200 000 cyclists and cycle tourists every year: la Loire à vélo, La Vélo Francette and Vallée du Loir à vélo. Angers claims a natural geographical legitimacy to organize the festival dedicated to Gravel. In the heart of France's first green city, come and spend a unique weekend exploring the riches of Anjou.

The Gravel Festival is organized by Destination Angers. It will take place on the Place de la Rochefoucault, near the banks of the Maine river.
