What route are we taking?
In five amazing tracks we're heading from Southern Eifel in Germany to Heerlen. Route master Gijs has made magnificent stages (powered by komoot) which take you through 5 countries France, Germany, Luxemburg, Belgium and The Netherlands, The Ride Gravel tracks are a mix of paved and unpaved roads. during the route you will face sand, clay, grass, stony, rocky, cobblestones and tarmac surfaces. All stages except for last stage will have standard length stage (100 km, level: intermediate) or XL stage (up to 125 km, level: experts), both at least 60% off road; with a free choice every day for riders.
Provisional route. Subject to change. Our routemeister Gijs is currently exploring the routes and will present the stages of around 100 km in January. All stages but the last, will also have the XL version (up to 125 km) for those who want to have even more challenge.
Our race director car will be on the road and in contact with our First Aid team and the broomwagon, in case that's needed.
On the route there are two feedstations where you can get water, fruit, sportdrinks and soup.
Can the route be altered?
Yes, the route can alter, this depends on permits and changing traffic. 1,5 week before the event you'll receive the GPX files (through komoot) from the organisation. You can download these files for every cycling computer.
