Gravel & Coffee

A social gravel ride, starting every first Weekend of the month, in a cycling inspired place. The rides will be all about being outside Together.

We will write our story inspired by famous races and places, but leaving the beaten tracks. engaging our senses and getting up close with the world.

The ride Can be short (around 3 hours) or longer. Weekender’s edition and bikepacking adventures will also come along. Der Lokomotiv aims within the concept of Gravel & Coffee on a social experience with small groups (max 25 people)

The gravel rides are unsupported, what means there will never be a car nearby or feeding stations on the way.

We will have to solve our mechanical problems ourselves. And during sleepovers it can be that we make our bed and prepare our own food.

So you will have to carry your stuff, but it is still a social event, so we will help each other out. We will leave no one behind.

In 2020 there will be 10 Breakfast rides (€30), 2 Weekend Adventures (€150) and some (free) extra rides.
