Bike stuff

What kind of bike can I bring?

It's a gravel festival, so bring a gravel or cyclocross bike.

We recommend using tyres with a width on or above 33 mm. You'll have plenty of time discussing the best tyre width and tubeless pros and cons at the festival, so we'll leave that for the nerdy discussions. It's part of the fun :-)

How are the bikes handled at the festival, when I’m not riding?

Lock it up! We have a fenced area for the babys! With guards - keeping an eye on the loved ones while you are having fun or sleeping.

Are helmets mandatory?

Of course. No access to the rides without one on top of your beautiful head.

Camping and practical stuff

What kind of stuff can I bring to the camping ground?

Included in the ticket price is a 3 x 3 meter camping space, where you can pitch a tent. You are not allowed to bring furnitures or anything else that isn't suitable for a weekend of camping.

If you feel like some extra luxury you can upgrade your stay by ordering one of our extra accomodation packages when buying the ticket.

Are there any shower facilities?

NO! Just kidding - of course – yes. But maybe there will be a queue if everyone will shower at the same time, so bring a beer, and meet a stranger.

Can I bring my dog?

No, please don’t, unless you need it as a helper. For the safety and wellbeing of the dog, this is not the event to bring a dog or other pets.

Are there First aid at the Festival?

Yes - you bet. During the day. And a lollipop if you hurt yourself. Larger damage or injuries will be taken care of at the hospital.

How do I pay at the festival?

We prefer mobile payment for all Danish riders. Are you not Danish, we will of course accept credit cards as Visa or Mastercard. Please do not bring or use cash on this festival. Primarily due to hygienic reasons for you and our staff and volunteers.

Smoking, how is that?

We encourage the smokers to take precautions and show respect to all the nonsmokers. Just step out of the crowd, go around a corner etc. Thanks! No Smoking in the camping area – please.

Transport

Can I come by car?

Yes you can. We offer free car parking, but... hey... it's a gravel festival, so wouldn't it be more cool to arrive by bike?

How do I get there?

By plane If you are flying in - choose to Copenhagen Airport. The venue is about 100 km from the airport. Public transport is possible to the venue from the airport (would require changing train a few times).

By train It's easy to get to Anneberg by train. Nykøbing Sjælland train station is only a few kilometers away. In Denmark you can bring your bike on all trains, but you might have to book it in advance. Check at the train station or online.

By car Easy peasy and we offer free car parking, but think how cool it would be to arrive by bike instead :-)

Food and drink

What kind of food is served at the festival?

The food we serve (included in the festival ticket) is made for graveling.

Breakfast: Primarily white and dark bread with cheese, jam etc. Hot oatmeal with toppings. Coffee and tea.

Lunch: Pasta or sandwich. Served at the festival site or out on the trails.

Dinner: Lots of proteins, salads, desserts etc. For meat lovers and vegetarians.

Due to hygiene, we need to serve all meals in pre arranged portions. Please bring your own cutlery, plate and drinking cup. And remember to clean it once in a while.

You can also buy lovely meat- and vegiburgers, al dente pasta with meatballs etc. to fill up, if needed.

Can I cook my own food?

Sure – we have a designated area for using your own open fire equipment. We do not provide equipment for preparing food... well except for a fire extinguisher. No open fire or cooking in the camping area.

Can I bring my own food and drinks?

Yes – but we hope and would definitely prefer that you support our initiative and effort and help us make the wheels spin for us as well. So please buy some cold beers, wine, bubbles or hot coffee/chocolate, juicy burgers and tender pasta with meatballs. You need to be 18 years old to buy alcohol.

What kind of drinks can I buy at the festival?

We've got you covered. You can buy nice and cold draft beers, a variety of specialist bottled beers, wines, bubbles, soft drinks, coffee, tea and hot chocolate.

What kind of snacks can I buy at the festival?

Different cakes, chocolate and müsli bars plus a variety of crisps.

We can not refund tickets due to a postponing, but you are welcome to pass on your ticket or sell it to someone else - just remember to sell at the list price, please.
