2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, with almost all in-person events being cancelled. The Jeroboam Series was no exception. We were only able to move forward with a small fraction of our calendar and our flagship event Jeroboam Franciacorta was ultimately halted before the gun went off this year.
But the spirit of Jeroboam lives on, despite not being able to host all our friends and greater gravel family this year. We still ride the type of routes that inspired the original event in fact, Niccolò, Mauro, Eric and Simone went out in search of new trails for the 2021 edition just a few weeks back. Inspired by their big ride, we are inviting everyone to take on their own challenge to create a 300km ride.
We decided to call this challenge the 3T #Soloboam. When you complete the challenge, send in your GPS files and we will send you a finisher’s patch right to your door.
Below, you will find the routes of past Jeroboams under OFFICIAL, or see what others have created under DIY (DO IT YOURSELF). Ride them or use them to help create your own routes if they’re local to you. If you're not close to the courses, then create your own ride using a tool like Komoot. Once you’ve completed it, we’ll put it in the DIY section below for other riders to use as well.
Those who organize Jeroboam will tell you that even more fun than riding it is to design its route. Find your route by getting lost! Use Komoot or another route planner to design a route of 300 km or more with as much gravel as possible close to home and get ready for adventure!
Jeroboam is a non-stop event, so the idea is to complete the loop all at once. Obviously you can stop to rest or sleep when and where you want: you can even stop-off for your own bed midway if the restrictions on travel or the climate in your region prevent you from straying too far from home.
Become a 3T #Soloboam finisher and receive the commemorative patch by sending a link to the ride file on Komoot or a similar platform to firstname.lastname@example.org, together with some images or even a ride report. Share your story on social media using the 3T #Soloboam tag and we will spread the word too.
If you are not familiar with route planning, we will help you by providing you with a code to unlock the maps of your region for free on Komoot: one of the most popular tools for adventurous cyclists to plan their routes.
