Entries Badlands open November 10th

The next edition of Badlands Gravel Adventure is announced and will take place from Sunday 1 till Friday 6 September with departure in Granada, Andalusia, Spain.

Badlands is an self-guided and unsupported bikepacking gravel adventure across the Tabernas Desert (the only official desert in Europe), the wild coast of Cabo de Gata and the highest Col in the continent, Pico Veleta

Without commenting on this, Badlands was at least selected as the most popular bikepacking event worldwide by our global audience of +1 million unique visitors.
