GS '2 2 - "La Conquista de Brabante Vallon"

What do we have in mind ?

- A 85 km Social ride with team Grelly as your guide. Do you have questions regarding our bikepacking event, are you curious to see who we are and what kind of events we might organise in the future, … ? Well, … this option will be the best way to meet and have a chat. Depending on the number of participants and the differences in speed, we can split the group at the start or along the way. We are flexible!

- A 135 km track that will be ridden in a self-supportive manner: gather your friends, have a coffee at the start, lubricate your chain, inflate (or deflate for some) your tyres and off you go! Enjoy the ride and let’s meet after the finish with some drinks. The track will be similar to last year's edition but in the oposite direction. 

- A 175 km XL-track... For the brave ! An earlier start with some additional/hidden features compared to the 135k-track. Start training, you might need it! ;-)

 

What kind of bike to bring ?

All tracks will go south from the start/finish in Bierbeek and will have a mixture of terrain to deal with: gravel, tarmac, single tracks, some rougher surface, cobbles, you name it.  Don’t expect only the super-smooth surfaces like you can find them in the Zonienwoud or the High fens; a cyclocross bike will be on the limit but a gravel bike with at least 42mm tyres would be perfect. Mountainbikes are a good option for those seeking for some more comfort. Expect an elevation gain around 800m for the short, 1800m for the 135k and over 2000m for the XL-track. All tracks are still being finalized, exact numbers will follow.
