What can I expect at the midway station?
During The Ride Gravel you are self-reliant during the day. You provide for yourself during the stages. There will be an overview of places you can eat or drink in the online road book. Every stage will have one checkpoint (midway) where you can grab water, fruit, sportdrink, snacks and soup. We will also use the checkpoint to keep track of you, you can rest a bit and head out for the second leg of your gravel stage of the day. We also provide an unmanned waterstation, where you can fill your water bottels. 
What route are we taking?
In five amazing tracks we're heading from Southern Eifel in Germany to the Cauberg (the iconic Dutch 'mountain'). 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 wil face sand, clay, grass, stony, rocky, cobblestones and tarmac surfaces. All stages except for last stage will have standard route (around 100 km) and XL-route (up to 150 km); 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 150 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 is a midway station where you can get water, fruit, sportdrinks and soup. There will also be another waterpoint during the stage where you can fill your water bottles.
What requirements must my bicycle meet?
You preferably need a real gravel bike (our partner Trek has great ones ;-) with wide tires. A mountain bike is also an option. During The Ride Gravel you cannot use a road bike with narrow tires, you have to have at least 38mm but preferably wider.
What do I need to bring during The Ride Gravel?
Well before the event you'll receive a packing list, it gives you all detailed info on what to bring. We also organise riders meetings where we will discuss this topic as well. We will inform you by mail on the riders events and you will have info in your personal digital vault ; The Gravel Hub. You can visit that with your personal login code on our website.

Route

Our routemeister Gijs is currently exploring the routes and will present the five stages of around 100 km each in January. All stages but the last, will also have the XL version (up to 150 km) for those who want to have even more challenge. We will make surethat we have the right mix between unpaved and tarmac (asphalt) (60/40). The routes will have mainly good gravel road but will have a challenging surface here and there. Gijs will tell all about it in his special webinar for participants, you will get an invite for that as a rider.
