For three days this summer, from 1 through 3 July, Valkenburg will live and breathe cycling history and nostalgia on two wheels.
 
Valkenburg – The first Eroica Limburg will be held on Sunday, 3 July 2016. There are three scenic and unique routes, all of which start in the international cycling city of Valkenburg and cross border into Belgium. In addition to conventional paved roads, the routes also include rough terrain. The ride is open exclusively to cyclists on vintage bikes (bicycles manufactured prior to 1987), and the dress code is likewise vintage.

Routes
Participants can choose between three distances: 50 kilometres, 100 kilometres and 160 kilometres. The routes go from Limburg across the border into Belgium. These courses are different from the long-established cyclo sportives in Limburg: in addition to paved roads, they also cover unpaved paths. Such conditions were the norm during the early years of the last century.
 
“This is an nostalgic event. With Eroica old times are relived in Limburg. It is good that young riders experience how tough cycling was in the old days. In the time that I raced we rode stages in the Tour de France of 300km, mostly over unpaved roads”, according to former Tour de France winner and world champion Jan Janssen. The ambassador of Eroica Limburg also called upon (former) pro riders. “Bring your old bike, pull on your race shoes, wear your old shirt and ride a long in this nostalgic event in July.”
