Have you experienced Vejle from its most beautiful side? Probably only from the fantastic roads the Grejsdalsloebet sportive uses every year. We are talking about the less used gravel roads and forest trails hidden in the beautiful countryside!
Saturday of May 13th, 2023 you can take part in a 75 km long gravel race, offering lots of nature and the beautiful old ice age landscape. The race starts in Vejle from 10.00 am. The GPS track curves through the river valley to Frederikshåb plantation and back towards Vejle. Along the way we cross several historical sites, with traces dating back to the time of the Vikings.
In the Gravel adventure you may use Gravel-, Cross- or MTB bikes. Road bikes are not advised. The route is not signposted. Participants must be able to download and follow a GPS track.
The gravel route contains 500 meters of climbing, and a distribution of 20% tarmac and 80% gravelroads and forest trails. After 50 km we have a large feedstop with cakes and refreshments. However, we recommend that you bring plenty of liquid and energy on the bike. After the race, a hot meal is served to all Gravel Grinders / participants in the finish area. We close the finish line at 6pm and food service at 7pm.
The race is a “self supported” race, which means you have to bring extra tubes, tools and other necessary equipment in case of technical issues. However, we will make sure that you are not left out on the route if things go wrong.
The event is timed, but it is not a race. There are plenty of prizes, but they are drawn at random. Your start number is your lottery ticket.
We are looking forward to sending you off in May in the Grejsdalsloebet Gravel Adventure from DGI-huset in Vejle.
