“A short recap of the @bbb_camp, probably the best gravel event in history. Thanks to @chimpbars for organizing it and to the awesome photographers who gave me their amazing pieces of art.”
“The Bohemian Border Bash is what all gravel events should aspire for: sublime riding in hidden settings, riding shoulder to shoulder with your best friends new and old. I loved how absolutely diverse the attendance was, brilliantly organized the weekend was and how beautifully chosen the routes were!”
“Bestes Wetter, beste Leute und eine schöne Landschaft.”
“A lot of fun with great people in a beautiful landscape. Thanks to everyone who made this @bbb_camp what it is.”
“@bbb_camp leads by example how friggin’ awesome these (Gravel) events actually are! Set in the beautiful Bohemian Swiss National Park, Ondrej a.k.a. Mr. @chimpbars leads you through the most beautiful places, via loads of heavenly crispy gravel roads, as well as some great dirt and grassy tracks through fields and woods.”
“When your head hurts in the morning and the legs in the evening. When you are wondering if you had a better time on or off the bike. When you encounter awesome people and discover an amazing piece of this planet. And at night there is something burning. Then it's probably the Bohemian Border Bash.”
“Nothing could have prepared me for quite how much fun I would be having in Bohemia. The insane beauty of this place meant I spent more time stopping for pictures than pedaling but that’s also the best way of making new friends. Somewhere along the way, I caught myself thinking: let’s come back here, again, again, and again.”
“Mein erster @bbb_camp. Krass anstrengend und super schön
“Ich have am Wochenende das rest Mal in mine Leben an einem Bike Camp teilgenommen. Was für eine Erfahrung! Auf einem steht man da utter Menschen die alle die gleiche Leidenschaft teilen. Gravel ist die neue Droge. Das Bild spricht für sich. Viel Natur, keine Autos, nur ich und mein Fahrrad. Ich hatte super viel Spaß und hab auf jeden Fall Lust auf mehr!”
"There has never really been a lull in the lifeblood of the heavily forested and mountainous borderlands of Bohemia. From early Celtic origins to Germanic settlers by the start of the Middle Ages, to later Slavic migrations... these wild lands hold deep emotional and pagan history, long before the Přemysl dynasty and Christianity formalized the structure of a Czech Bohemia across the 9th-13th centuries. Throw in some Holy Romans, Hussites & Hapsburgs, and the international history of Bohemia marches on, building up and breaking down borders all the way to our modern-day, integrated right at the heart of Europe..."
