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. Gravel riding means distancing oneself from everyday roads, rampaging in the dust, driving in mud, losing oneself on the numerous paths with a sweaty t-shirt and an empty water bottle …
When one experiences all this with like-minded people it brings great pleasure and a smile on ones face. All of this and more is also Human Fish Gravel, which is a form of an “escape” to the most beautiful macadam trails with an intense experience of beautiful places and people.
Gravel is about community, it’s about friendship and our mission is to create a personal and intimate gravel experience. The Human Fish Gravel is a story that enables us to get rowdy, be adventurous, race and celebrate with friends. This is the story of cyclists who have gravel in their blood, living for those devilly good times on the bike, away from the worries of everyday life.
The Human Fish (Proteus)
Some 150 species can be found in the mysterious subterranean world of Postojna Cave, Slovenia, but only one can truly be described as the main event. Call it the Olm, call it the Proteus, call it the Human Fish, call it what you will, but what it is without doubt is one of the most unique creatures on the planet. The proteus has come to great prominence in the centuries since however. Charles Darwin famously used them as an example of his theory of the reduction of structures through disuse, citing their blindness as something that had been gotten rid of over time.
Why Human Fish gravel grinding?

Best of Gravel
Human Fish Gravel is the best thing that a gravel enthusiast searches for. It is a combination of excellent gravel roads and marvelous natural surroundings.
A Simple Story
Human Fish Gravel is not a story of a grand financial investment and a search of opportunities. It is a simple idea of gravel riding enthusiasts, who wish to meet other like-minded people and share the experiences.
Life is a Gravel
Gravel cycling is more and more inspiring cyclists across Europe. On the cycling scene, there are more and more lovers of secluded, dynamic roads and various gravel paths that take cyclists through the most beautiful parts of the country and offer them an intense exploration, a true experience. Being a gravel cyclist, cycling fast, even bold, totally sporty, but still exploring the remote places is something truly wonderful.
I wonder often what would be a great location for cyclists, who love gravel roads, now and then choose a pleasant single trail, rush along fast gravel roads, sliding through bends, indulging in mud and puddles, enjoy socializing, local culinary, good coffee along the way… I pretty much follow the happenings in the gravel cycling scene, where all the most beautiful stories of this kind develop, where the gravel communities are built, where the gravel cyclists go in search of the most amazing experiences. Personally, I’m a big fan of gravel cycling, and my home destinations are primarily Slovenia, Croatia and Balkan countries. I have found that any location can be good for gravel grinders, but every gravel cyclist has high expectations and Human Fish Gravel with great destinations around is a great choice.
