JEROBOAM bike festival – 22/23 september 2018

What is jeroboam?
Jeroboam is europe’s top gravel and adventure cycling event

Jeroboam is a gravel ride?
Jeroboam is more than a gravel ride.
You can choose your “ride size”:
– 300 km adventure gravel self supported.
– 150 km road
– 75 km gravel
– 37,5 km social
(you can also choose your bottle size of franciacorta “bollicine”:
Jeroboam 300, magnum 150, standard 70, demi 37,5.
It’s better after the ride)

And jeroboam300?
Not the classic gravel ride: j300 is technical and demanding.
You must be prepared to pedal 300 km and 6000d+ in 2 days, mostly on
Mountain gravel terrain.
J300 is just for tough riders.

What my family will do during my ride?
Franciacorta region is one of the most beautiful in italy and is famous
Worldwide for its “bollicine” wine.
Historical cities of brescia or bergamo or wonderful garda or iseo lakes
Are just few kms away from erbusco.

What is the ideal bike for jeroboam300?
A gravel bike with large tires is your perfect “jeroboam tool”, but also an
Xc mtb could be a good choice.
No road bikes.
If you do it with a fat bike, you are an hero.

This is your compulsory kit:
– helmet
– waterproof jacket (taped seams)
– front light and bike lights
– mobile phone with never alone app
– food and water
– spare tubes, tools and a pump

I’ll find some refreshment points?
There will be 2 refreshment points along the way, before and after the
Most difficult part.
The first one, after 107km, is the rifugio amici miei, in pertica bassa (Map)

You’ll find food, shelter and a smile.
There is a maximum time for the j300?
