Enjoy sun-kissed Gravel at the 3rd BEDROCK Gravel Festival!

The Bedrock GravelFestApril 14th - 21st, 2024 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, go ride or learn traditional local skills including Basket Weaving, Hallumi and Koupepia making and a Cooking School. Spend a day in Limassol, enjoy Wine Tasting with local wines, or the Bike Center. There’ll be a cold beer and a rock garden at the Bike Center!

In the evenings 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 traditional stone-built houses that house participants are scattered throughout the village. Perfectly situated in an area with really dense network of gravel roads.
