2020 WISHONE 130 GRAVEL EVENT CONFIRMED : AVEYRON FRANCE
Wish One – August 28/29th 2020
Wish One is a french cycling brand based in the department of Aveyron. When Maxime Poisson and François-Xavier Blanc founded the company their ultimate goal was to inspire people to ride their bike. Human is at the center of the project because they believe that bicycle is a great vector of progress for the humanity. They organized a durable eco-system to design unique bicycles in terms of design and performance.
They also thought about how to create new inspiration for the cycling practice, their goal was to explore new way of approaching cycling : far away from the busy roads, in beautiful scenery… while making it epic, challenging and fun. It’s where the idea of creating the Wish One 130 started.
