Two friends with heart and sould connected with cycling

April 29, 2018

The organisation of Eroica Limburg lays in te capable hands of Iwan Linckens and Richard Van Beek. Iwan and Richard, both residing in Valkenburg, got infected by the Eroica virus three years a go. Iwan, former cyclist, read about Eroica Gaiole in a magazine and was immediately caught by the special combination of vintage cycling with enjoying and preserving the beauty of a region, local food specialities, music and regional culture.
 
He told this story with lots of enthousiasm to his friend Richard. Richard listened and acted immediatley by booking two tickets for a flight to Tuscanny where Eroica origines from. The visit to Eroica Gaiole was a great succes, the level of enthousiasm increased further. Soon the idea emerged of introducing Eroica to the cycling crazy region of Limburg. With lots of fun, care and knowledge Eroica was introduced in Limburg. Now, four years after the first introduction to the world of Eroica, Iwan and Richard together with an enthouastic team organise the third edition of this unique cycling event in Limburg. “For this third edition we will rais the bar even higher. Besides the cycling which is the basis of the event, we offer again a three day musical and foodtruckfestival. Like last year we also tought about the kids and families. A nostalgic fair will be held on the festival grounds in Dersaborgpark. Eroica Limburg has much more to offer than just that unique retro cycling vibe. That was a novity for the people in Limburg and just took some time to communicate just that message”, tells Richard. Iwan continuous, „Cyclist in the Low Countries have to adapt to the unique concept of Eroica. They were not used to it, the quality, the storytelling and the special Eroica ambiance. We have put a lot of energy in explaning the concept of Eroica. That message has landed. Now we can put even more energie into the route, the festival programm and the atmosphere in Valkenburg and along the routes. There is for sure no lack of energy with these two gents.
 
Eroica Limburg will be organised in the weekend of June 29 – July 1 in Valkenburg (Limburg).
