In 5 amazing stages we're heading from Vosges to the Cauberg. The Ride Gravel routes are all 100+ km and at least 60% off-road. For the hardcore gravellers you can opt for an extra long route on day 2 and 4. 

The routes are subject to changes and will be available later on komoot. 

The Ride Gravel takes you from the round tops of the Vosges to the Cauberg in the South of Limburg. On magnificent gravel tracks you’ll see the most amazing natural landscapes, from the uncharted Northern Vosges to the famous Eifel vistas. Routes are powered by komoot.
