A cool ride to be experienced between Gravel riders but not only: our mountain riders are also welcome for this sporty and tasty ride. Each to his own rhythm on this incredible route to reach the majestic castle of Plessis-Bourré by crossing the plateaus of Haut-Anjou by “Gravel” paths, but also by the typical bocage paths linking Cantenay-Epinard, Bourg, Soulaire and Ecuillé.

A barbecue evening around a campfire with music to gather with the Gravel community and have a good time with friends. A return at nightfall to discover or rediscover the sensations of night riding and then cross the finish line to the sound of Californian rock at the Gravel Festival.
