We offer routes for gravel riders of every level. You can choose between three routes of 65, 110 and 140 km.
Starting near the Grand Commandery Alden Biesen in Bilzen, Flanders Gravel Limburg will take you to the heart of fruit region Haspengouw. Discover the beautiful views and castles along the route and enjoy the festival atmosphere at the finish. 
More information about the route
We'll ride in two loops: a morning and afternoon loop and both have a feed station. For the 65 km, there will only be a morning loop. Halfway you'll return to the festival area to get spoiled with a delicious Bavet pasta (veggie too and it's included). Start and finish are in Bilzen.

Find out your legs ain't good during your ride? No problem. You can choose and change your distance at any time without informing the organization. We will release the GPX files by email a week before the event.


It's not a race, but...

To add some extra spice to Flanders Gravel Limburg we have time registration in selected sections.

Officially it's not a race, but it will tell you how fast you are tracking on these sections and you can compare your time with the pros. Are you the fastest guy or girl in class?
