Experience the most undiscovered off-road adventure on the Island of Cyprus. Off the bike, relax with traditional Cypriot cuisine and culture!
The Bedrock GravelFest, April 9-15, 2023 is a week-long adventure both on and off the bike.
Cyprus is an undiscovered gravel wonderland just waiting for bold adventurous riders to be immersed in nature and get out of their comfort zone.
Activate Cyprus understand and appreciate what true gravel riding is about, they know the island intimately, and will leave you speechless with their vast knowledge of pedalling in remote, off-the-beaten-path pure gravel whilst enjoying the amazing scenery.
The expert guided rides include climbing the Troodos mountain range, onto the west side of the island where dense green forests meet the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean, highlighting the undiscovered beauty of Cyprus.
It’s a blend of great rides and local gastronomy, wine making, cheese farms and orchards loaded with fresh fruits calling you to taste them.
Of course it goes without saying that no gravel adventure is complete without the after-party including; good specialty coffee, a rare brew, trying new food, talking bikes, pump tracks, music and barbeques.
This curated week of sublime gravel riding includes immersing yourself in the Cypriot way of living where simplicity is a virtue. Indulge in the most delicious traditional meals that the island has to offer.
Wake up for an early morning Yoga stretch, learn traditional local skills including pottery, Halloumi making & Basket Weaving and Koupepia and Hummus making. Dine in local taverns and at the local fishing village, enjoy a traditional Cypriot party and Meze dinner and wine tasting courtesy of Vasiliko Winery.
The week culminates with the fun 51 mile Bedrock Gravel Race and Awards Ceremony, Barbeque Party with Chef Avraamis, Beer Tasting by Π?βο Microbreweries.
