Gravel biking pushes boundaries

Road biking rediscovered: gravel biking

Much more than just a trend: gravel biking is becoming a genuine alternative to traditional road biking. It doesn’t really matter whether you’re in Germany, Austria, Italy or Slovenia – with a gravel bike you can travel (almost) anywhere!

A genuine gravel bike experience awaits in the selected destinations! For example in the gravel insider tip of Slovenia: discover our neighbours on new trails – through former railway tunnels and tracks or underground through former mines and narrow rock passages.

What about gravel biking in the Dolomites?

Let yourself be inspired by our online magazine on this issue and maybe your next gravel biking holiday will take you into the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the foot of the epic, pale mountains are countless off-road routes that are waiting to be discovered. Loose ground, gravel, forest paths, forest floors and meadows will become your new favourite territory. Let your gravel bike take you cross-country over rough and smooth terrains!

There’s definitely something behind the hype about the specialised generalists – the wide profile studs open up many new possibilities. Gravel biking means pure biking freedom – without limitations and barriers! Discover new paths away from asphalted roads and expand your horizons. Rediscover your new favourite biking region – or set off onto completely new terrain.


Be as wonderfully versatile as your gravel bike!

The versatile gravel bikes – which could casually be described as an “all-in-one piece of equipment” – are well on the way to overtaking traditional mountain bikes when it comes to bikepacking. The “new ones” are definitely worth considering as an alternative to bigger road biking adventures.

Do you also want to try something new? Pack a spare shirt and shorts in your bags and set off on a long-lasting natural experience: every day a new region, every evening another road bike holtel, every morning putting on a freshly washed shirt before heading off to a healthy athletes’ breakfast – the laundry service in all Roadbike Holidays hotels makes this possible!

Your guide for more gravel biking fun

When (re)-exploring off-piste, it’s important to have cycling experience on the terrain. The geometry of the gravel and the rough, slightly loose surface are waiting to be conquered. A cycling technique course where one of the Roadbike Holidays guides teaches you a few tricks is a good decision for both pleasure gravel bikers and gravel racers. And the courses and professional guides are also a lot of fun!
