Participation Package...? What's that?
You can choose one of the three participation packages. All packages include your entry fee, so all riders will get the atmosphere, the routes, the vibe at the finish square, the basic bike support, the emergency service, the checkpoints (with water and fruit), the riders' guide and road book etc.. The way you spend your nights, that's the main difference per package. Want to bring your own tent? Sure, choose Rough & Tumble package. Want more luxury with a private large popup tent with inflatable bed with mattress and electricity in your tent? Choose Bold & Beautiful package (you will also get tokens for your soda, beer and soul food at the finish square). The Lean and Mean package includes a smaller popup tent with mattress and also tokens for soul food at the finish square. Inthe Lean & Mean and the Bold & Beautiful package a Breakfast in a Bag is included (with sandwiches, yoghurt and cereals, milk, coffee, fruit and more).
Do I have access to a power connection at the campsite?
Sure! There are possibilities to charge your bicycle computer, mobile phone and other devices in our so-called The Ride Charging Points. These are located at the Finish Square. For Bold and Beautiful-participants: you also have power connection in your big Camping+ tent.
Can I use WiFi at the campsite?
Yes, the campsites have WiFi. The quality cannot be guaranteed (since we are with a peloton and we all want to communicate after the stages :-)), but there is also internet coverage on your mobile phone.
Can I wash my cycling clothes?
You can hand wash your cycling kit, so bring some hand washing liquid. Some camp sites will have washing machines but we recommend to be self-reliant and opt for the washing by hand.
Is there a place to dry cycling clothes?
Yes! If the weather is nice you can dry outside If it's rainy we'll make sure there is a area where you can dry your wash.
Can I securely park my bike at the campsite?
We know that cyclists like to sleep close to their bikes. So that will be possible. You can have your bike near your tent. It's important to bring a good lock: safety first. If you want to store your bike in a secured place, that is possible. The event manager on location will make sure that your bike gets the place that you think it deserves.
Where can I keep my valuables while cycling?
Your are responsible for keeping your valuables safe. The organisation does not have a vault at your disposal :-). So we recommend not to bring valuable stuff, such as laptops or tablets. Please leave them at home. You can take your phone and wallet with you on your bike, you will need them during the stages anyway :-).
