More than just a Festival

The Concept

The festival was born out of the desire to promote the practice of Gravel by associating a sporting challenge with a real desire to reconnect with nature. Exhibition, night ride, riders’ tracks, activities on the village, food and beverage areas, sessions to raise awareness, family experience: Nature is Bike, that's all of it.

Nature is Bike is part of an eco-event approach. In order to limit the impact of the Festival on its environment, the organizers want to respect their commitments with a sustainable, local, social and united vision. This cross-sectional vision is translated into actions ranging from an eco-responsible design of the website to the collection and revaluation of post-festival 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.
