Gravel riding represents a discovery of new areas and an enjoyable exploration on two wheels. Mostly with friends in beautiful natural surroundings. Gravel riding offers relatively a lot in terms of discovery and it is done in a very simple way.

Each participant of the Human Fish Gravel can have his or her own interpretation of the race due to the experiences of these special areas, where the worldwide known and unique animal called Proteus (Human Fish) resides. This is an amazing place – one of the best in the Balkans for gravel cyclists.
