Flanders Gravel Diksmuide
Number one of the Flanders Gravel Series in 2022 is done and dusted! The first edition of Flanders Gravel Diksmuide was an unforgettable experience. Check the photos to get an impression!

In the shadow of the IJzer Tower we immersed ourselves in world history with a tour that tributed to the victims of the First Wold War. A unique combination of historical places, beautiful gravel paths, nature in the Yser Pain, a cosy festival atmosphere and perfect weather. We want to thank all amazing participants who made it a huge success. See you in one of the other Flanders Gravel events or next year in Diksmuide!

Can anyone join Flanders Gravel?
The organisation recommends everyone not to perform heavy exercise without sufficient physical preparation. Make smart choices in terms of the distance you wish to complete and the pace you want to ride at.
