Distances: 50, 100km
Difficulty: Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs

Gravel rides are becoming increasingly popular in Holland and the GravelFest organisers are very excited about their event. The format seems to be the usual mixed surface offering over 50 and 100kms. Timed stages add a bit of spice to the ride so you can take your racing head if you want. Otherwise, take it easy and enjoy the scenery.

One of these segments is the rather famous partly cobbled “Tom Dumoulin Bike Parc”. Segment winners are promised some very “cheerful” awards.

Despite the relatively short distances on offer, the organisers promise 1,000 meters of climbing including some steep pulls. I must admit, I am having trouble equating Holland with climbing, but a brief journey through the internet confirms it looks quite hilly. Presumably, it will be hilly enough to take you out of your comfort zone.

You too can roll up in your classic Volvo and camp in the grounds of an 18th century castle. But only by registering for GravelFest.

Post ride, you can get stuck into locally produced burgers as well as salmon, veggie dishes and pasta. Not forgetting the delights of Belgian beer.

Once you have refuelled, kick back and enjoy the entertainment of resident groove master “Oscar Draait Plaatjes” in the grounds of an 18th century castle!
