Strada Campina 2019

Strada Campina

October 03 2020
Turnhout, Belgium

The Strada Campina is a mixed surface (gravel) ride through the Noorderkempen (Turnhout) and Zuiderkempen (Averbode-Westerlo) regions in the north of Belgium.

The routes will take you over the quiet backroads, the lonely sandroads and some nice singletracks of the area. Some asphalt roads will link the good stuff together.

The main waypoints along the routes are some of the many abbeys (each with their own special beer) of the region.

The 2020 Strada Campina is offering 3 packages. The first 200 entrants will receive an extra goodie and a chance to win a Kona frameset!

Date: Saturday 3-OCT-2020

Start/Finish: Cafe Barzoen, Warandestraat 42 , B2300 Turnhout
They always have a nice selection of food on the menu, serve a very good cup of fairtrade coffee and have cold beers on tap. Everything you need to fuel up before, and refuel after the ride.

This is not a race, the course is on public roads, crossroads and intersections will not be secured. You need to follow the traffic code. Keep it safe. Be nice, say hi. Don't litter.
