Bohemian Boarder Bash

It is great when you get one of those emails from a like minded person who is totally into cycling, understands that it is not always about Strava KOM’s and knows you like to have a lot of fun on and off the bike. So when Vendelín from Chimpanzee dropped me a line about the Bohemian Boarder Bash I jumped at the chance.

For those that don’t know Chimpanzee they have been the go to nutrition for various events over the last couple of years. “Chimpanzee Nutrition has been around for 9 years. We had an idea for a 100% natural energy bar with no bullshit ingredients. We had 3 recipes and we decided to start a company and see where it would go from there. We were tired with the usual offering and we wanted to bring something new to the market. Now we offer not only Energy Bars, we have Energy Gels, Drinks, Chews, Protein Bars and all our products are 100% natural”.

“Chimpanzee is supporting these kind of events because we are (I’m) passionate about this sport. Plain and simple. I love riding, I love gravel bikes and people around it”.

For those that haven’t come across the Bohemian Boarder Bash you should really check it out. “The Bash is a mini festival. We have focused on the fun part a lot. Our event is not a race, it is a series of rides and mini events which are designed to be enjoyable. The AlleyCat treasure hunt ride is going to be a lot of fun and something most people never experienced. The 150km long Gravel Gran Fondo will be challenging indeed but not in impossible terrain, indeed it will be fun to ride. The 300km long Jeroboam Ride will be the most challenging course of the weekend should you choose it”.

Taking part in one of the most stunning areas of Europe this multi-day gravel event situated in the beautiful Saxon Switzerland National Park, on the border between Germany and Czech Republic.

“The Bash is part of 3T’s broader Jeroboam World Wide Gravel Series, offering medium, long, and ultra-endurance gravel events around the globe. Several years in development, our event has inspired many colleagues from within the cycling industry and is enjoying generous support in its inaugural public edition from 3T, Chimpanzee Nutrition, WTB, Ass Savers, PEdAL ED, Wahoo, and Komoot”.
