NEW DATE GRAN FONDO DRENTHE
In order to help prevent the further spread of the Convid19 virus especially in congested areas, NL Tour Rides is taking several measures as precautions. Among these measures is the decision to move the Gran Fondo Drenthe from 11 April to 12 July 2020.
“A DAY IN HELL”
You may think you can only experience riding proper cobbles on the roads of France and Belgium. But did you know that we have our own cobble roads right here in the Netherlands? At the Gran Fondo Drenthe you get to experience a Day in Hell on dutch cobble stones! This sportive is nicknamed “The Stone Ride”. We selected 20 kilometres of “nasty” cobblestone roads just for you: a Day in Hell which is the perfect combination between road racing and gravel racing.
The start and finish are at the Velodrome in Assen, so the finish feels a bit like Paris-Roubaix. For those of you that want a bit easier ride or simply don’t like cobblestones, you can choose the paved paths next to the cobbles. Either way, you can enjoy the beautiful rural landscape of on of Holland’s best cycling provinces: Drenthe.
