We really didn’t know what to expect. An unfamiliar location, routes we hadn’t ridden before and a group of people we never met in real life. To say excitement levels were high for our first Van Nicholas Adventure Team weekend is one hell of an understatement.
Mixing it up
The format was simple. A weekend getaway for the members of our international adventure team, all experienced adventurers and Van Nicholas ambassadors, mixed with daily Social Rides open to the public.
For the team it was all about getting to know each other. Share their stories and exchange ideas on their experience with the bikes and what the future could bring. For the public it was a chance to get to know the people behind the brand and get some first hand experience with the bikes. All while getting to know a bunch of new, likeminded, people.
Trying to give everybody something to look forward too, we also mixed up road riding and gravel/adventure riding. A mix to guaranteed to get us both really tired AND really really dirty.
