The Ride

The third edition of Eroica Limburg will be ridden on Saturday 30th of June 2018. Three stunning and unique routes will depart from the global cycling hub of Valkenburg, passing through Belgium as well as the Netherlands. The route features not only the more familiar paved roads, but also includes an off-road section through the most beautiful part of the Benelux region. And of course, the event will be completely suffused with the special, historical Eroica style and atmosphere.
 
All the participants will be riding on bicycles manufactured before 1987. In addition, we will be asking everyone to wear an outfit to go with their retro bike and hunt down some of the colourful jerseys from the early days of cycling. In the first weekend of July, Limburg will be transformed into the most colourful retro zone in the Benelux.
 
The start and finish area, in the centre of Valkenburg, will be given a full retro-style makeover for the occasion with food trucks, an old-fashioned Belgian 'mirror tent' (an art-nouveau travelling dance hall decorated with mirrors and stained glass), regional produce, the bandstand, a fair featuring antique cycling equipment and performances by old and new artists to complete the festival atmosphere.
 
The participants will be surprised at various nostalgic stops along the route, with drinks and dishes from the region, which will put a smile on their faces. And we can already tell you now that the tour will not be timed. So go at your own pace while you enjoy the surroundings, take photos and travel back in time with us!
