Bram’s Gravel Heaven
Join Bram on his beloved gravel terrain and favorite rides! Better let Bram explain himself what he has planned for you.
What Bram says about his favorite gravel rides; “After my career I discovered the gravel bike. The possibilities are endless around my hometown Rekem. I will take you through the Hoge Kempen National Park in Belgium on the most beautiful gravel paths, without seeing anyone for hours. The vastness of the forests of this national park will certainly surprise you. We start in beautiful old Rekem for a trip along the Grensmaas to quickly dive into the forest. Of course we begin our adventure with a cup of coffee and some stories from the heart of the professional cycling peloton. During the tour I would love to teach you the tricks of the trade about cycling on gravel.
During the route, we will of course look for the now well-known ‘grenspalen’ (border markers). In this area they are almost all off-road so the gravel bike is ideal. Once infected with the border marker virus you will want to find them all and what could be more fun than having a beautiful goal during your bike rides. This is also where the real die-hards can prepare for ‘my’ Border Posts Xtreme. A trip along the entire border of the Netherlands and Belgium over more than 400km.
Would you prefer to climb on gravel or to leave Maastricht for a trip through the hilly country? Sure! Digging into the South Limburg hills is a unique experience and gives you a completely different picture of Limburg. Steep climbs and rapid descents follow each other in quick succession and the gravel paths over the plateaus or through the valleys are of unparalleled beauty. After the tour it will feel like you have been far away from the Netherlands.
