Bohemian Border Bash
The Bohemian Border Bash is a multi-day Gravel Bike Riding Event organized in the heart of one of Central Europe’s most beautiful National Parks, on the border between Germany and Czech Republic. The Bash is not a race, but rather a collection of inspiring rides among sandstone pinnacles & rock gorges, wild streams, and winding roads. The event was created to share the picturesque riding this lesser-known region has to offer, and to bring together like-minded gravel bikers for a long weekend packed with camaraderie on & off the bike.
The Race is a fixed route, unsupported, single-stage ultra-endurance on & off-road cycling competition. It will start and finish in Bohemian-Saxon Switzerland National Park, and the route will follow the ancient borderlands of Bohemia via the remnants of centuries-old road networks that still exist to this day. The riders will compete on their approximately 1300km long journey circumnavigating Bohemia, crossing back-and-forth along national borders, riding through Germany, Austria, Poland, and the Czech Republic. With over 23,000m of climbing, it will be a test of each rider's abilities and a true adventure - a race able to rival ultra-endurance events on faraway continents, yet here, in the middle of Europe.
