We had heard of this volcanic island in the middle of the Indian Ocean that had amazing trail riding, a tight-knit group of local riders, and diverse landscapes. We went into the trip without expectations and left inspired by the new friends we met and the rugged beauty of the place. If you ever get a chance to go Reunion Island—do it.





Reunion Island with Bryn and Bas.

bigquotesGoing around this island, I thought it would be pretty quick because it’s not a big place, but it’s like zig-zaggy roads everywhere you go and you’re constantly going either up or downhill because it’s just a big volcano.Bas Van Steenbergen
