Orbit360 Gravity Bike Festival

Another Gravel Camp, really? But wait, the Orbit360 crew is creating the fusion of music festival and bike holiday.

Let’s be honest: Gravel Camps are THE thing in 2021. Everyone is doing one, and slowly we get it. This is a safe bet to have a fully booked event and jump on the gravel train! The Orbit360 crew is quite late to the party, but maybe we are not really talking about a “Gravel Camp” here.

Cycling camp meets music festival

Remember those good old times as we pilgrimed to music festivals? As we still had parties. Oh well, those were the days. Since the beginning of this seemingly never ending pandemic it seems everyone is getting a gravel bike. And now that we can, of course we attend events to meet up with other cyclists and socialise! But what if we mix the Gravel Events we love so much with a music festival?

"Gravity is a multi-day bike festival located in an abandoned old Sowjet military base.

The festival will be a great innovative mixture of a bike riding get-together and elements of a classical music festival. This includes listening to music, getting together for a night out, riding in some multi-surface racing, taking part on bike-related workshops or yoga & meditation sessions and interacting with the great cycling community."

So what do you get?

Speaker sessions, a club night, movie theater, dotwatching, workshops, equipment testing, Yoga and much more. And of course the finest multi surface riding as you are used to by the Orbit360 gravel series!

Where does it happen?

At an Old Sowjet Airport in Allstedt near well, the middle of nowhere! (Leipzig is the closest bigger town.) The Orbit360 crew is providing GPS coordinates so you can find the location. That sounds like a great adventure!

When does it happen?

19th - 22nd of August

How much does it cost?

149€ for 4 days - that’s a very fair price!

Ok you got me, where can I register?
