Soak in 3T Bohemian Border Bash gravel with us this Sept – A new multi-day gravel event is coming at the end of summer, into the backyard of our European office. The Bohemian Border Bash is a fresh three day event on the Czech/German border around the respective Bohemian & Saxon Switzerland National Parks on a mix of gravel & paved roads. The region is one of our favorite, and we’re there several times a year testing the latest in road and gravel tech.

The event has been developed together with 3T’s Jeroboam concept, so there will be 75km, 150km, and a whopping overnight 300km ride option, plus some extra rides for those who stick around. My wife & I are currently on the fence if we should do the stupid long one, or spend those extra nine hours in the camp drinking Czech beer and hanging out with friends. In any case, pick the all-inclusive 3-day Camp option, or one of the single big weekend rides. Every option will sort you with a place to stay, ride nutrition, beer to drink, and dinner & party post-ride. Details & registration at: TheBash.cc

See you there, or pedal squares.
