VCS Family Ride

At the Gravel Ride & Race Bern, Switzerland’s largest gravel event, there is now a starting option for adults and children who want to pedal together. The “VCS Family Ride” combines gravel riding fun, discovery, race feeling and cleverness. The focus is 100 percent on participating together and having fun.


VCS Family Ride


Fun and experience are in the spotlight

Although there is a time measurement and the unforgettable arrival at the finish line is waiting at the end of the route, the focus is on something else: On the way there are four quiz stations, which are waiting for the families with exciting and tricky questions on the topic of mobility. At the VCS booth at the finish line, families can check whether they have answered all the questions correctly. Families who have answered (almost) all questions correctly will receive great rewards.
