This was Flanders Gravel Limburg

Saturday August 6, 2022

6 August

Flanders Gravel Limburg
The third event of the Flanders Gravel Series in 2022 was amazing. There was just so much positive gravel excitement going on at every stage of the Flanders Gravel Limburg edition. Check the photos and you will join us next year as well!

On the 6th of August participants explored the unpaved roads in the vicinity of the Landcommanderij Alden Biesen in Bilzen, the heart of the Haspengouw fruit region and the Hoge Kempen, the only national park in Belgium. Whether the gravel bikers picked the 65, 110 or 145 km route, the combination of beautiful views and unknown places along a sloping South Limburg course was absolutely great. And what to say about the unique festival atmosphere at the arrival. We want to thank all the  participants for making this a very special day!
