The Nature is Bike festival, which has been awarded the “Eco-engaged Event” label (level 2, Reeve network) in 2022, has been committed to eco-design since its inception.
This naturally fits in with the continuous improvement approach of Destination Angers, which is ISO 20121 certified for the eco-responsibility of its events, but is also fully in line with gravel culture. Nature is Bike’s ambition is to share the practice of Gravel, which reveals a new art of living that combines discovery of the territories and exploration of nature, with the greatest respect for the environment.
