Jeroboam series
Back to home
Gravel What does "gravel" exactly mean? Originally it was a road surface. Then it became a type of bike capable of much more than just riding on gravel. Now above all "gravel" is a way of cycling: discovering new places and people and the fun on the journey rather than just getting to the finish line fast. Jeroboam summarizes, in its four distances, all the possible approaches to the gravel world: from the most adventurous to the most "racy" (although not a race!) For this reason, remember we will give very precise indications on how to prepare your bike for each distance as soon as we will have the final routes.
Festival Not just riding, but also spending time with friends and other cycling enthusiasts. Jeroboam events always feature an expo area and a space to socialize with good music and interesting stories. A complete schedule of the events at the village will be available soon on this website.
Food&Drink Cycling means burning a lot of calories and we are not convinced an energy bar or gel is the best way to refuel. Good food and lots of drink options never lack in the Jeroboam village. The details about the village kitchen proposals will soon be available.
Accomodation The reccomended hotels around the start point are:
Location The village will be set up at the Gilded Iguana hotel, at Playa Guiones Guanacaste Province Nosara. A list of the services and exhibitors present and a map of the village will soon be available.
