  • Because we want to build a sustainable ecosystem to build ultimate bikes in terms of design and performance;
  • Because we place people at the heart of this ecosystem;
  • Because we believe that cycling is a great vehicle for individual and collective progress;
  • And because the Aveyron is undoubtedly the ideal department for practicing gravel cycling;
  • We decided to organize the 1st event entirely dedicated to gravel cycling on the Community of Communes “from Causses to Aubrac”.
  • The Wish One 130 “from Causses to Aubrac” will therefore offer an ultimate 130 km gravel event for competitive cyclists looking for performance and 2 days of hiking for sport cyclists looking for adventure.

Wish One 130 is an official Aveyron FFC 2020 race, organized in partnership with Vélo d’Olt, Saint-Geniez-d’Olt-et-d’Aubrac cycling club.

GRAVEL PHENOMENON

Unquestionably, gravel is the cycling discipline of the moment and everything is there to make it last a long time. Adventure, exploration of new territories, safety, new way of cycling for some, more and more manufacturers producing, even the Union Cycliste Internationale is thinking about a world championship for in the near future … gravel thus offers a multitude of advantages for riders. The main feature of this practice for cyclists is to alternate their “rides” between asphalt, paved roads, degraded roads, rolling paths, single-tracks, undergrowth, agricultural or forest paths, and even cobbles … with the same pleasure of cycling. The aesthetics of the bikes and the moments of sharing, on and off the bike, are also to be considered in this phenomenon which comes mainly from the United States and which, in France, perhaps is reinventing the famous cycle-tourism! Wish One, with its SUB (Sport Utility Bicycle) model and the Wish One 130, aims to bring a racing dimension to this discipline while keeping the strong values of eco-citizenship and humanism of the brand.

ZOOM ON BIKE PACKING

Which cyclist has never dreamed of leaving home and being guided to where his legs and his mind will take him … then stop, rest, sleep on the spot and leave the next day? Bike packing offers a little bit of all that and much more! In fact, whether you plan a bicycle trip or go on an adventure without a specific itinerary … thanks to bike-packing, you can load up your bike more or less heavily and you are ready for the ‘adventure. Meet people, stop in villages, discover new landscapes, feel the fatigue (accentuated by the weight added to the bike) in your legs, swallow the kilometers, cross passes, face the bad weather, see the sunrise or sunset from your bike, have stories to tell … If you are not yet won out by this discipline, go for it! You will not be disappointed …

SUPPORT BROUGHT BY THE WISH ONE 130

Wish One commits to donating the bike packing entry fees to the association: Amis du PNR Aubrac to help support the actions that are done to preserve and enhance the riches of this exceptional territory.
