Take an exclusive look in the showroom of Shimano Europe
The Shimano Europe headquarters also form the backdrop of our second bike ride on Sunday, June 24. On that day, we will organize The Groote Heide Shimano Gravel Ride across beautiful gravel trails in the province of Brabant. The adventurous bike routes follow roads with little traffic and through the woody terrain of Kempen and the Strabrechtse heath plains.
Distances of 45, 75 and 105 km are available, all suitable for a racing bike, MTB and gravel bike. Bibs can be obtained on the day itself at the Shimano Europe headquarters where you also will be able to view the showroom.
The bike tour is well catered for, offering well-stocked provisioning posts, technical support by Shimano, medical support, and a pasta meal at the finish line, and served on the lively hospitality terrain. Here, various innovative side events will take place. The festival is followed up by an exciting women’s match in which cyclists of the Boels-Dolmans team are likely to participate.
De Groote Heide; so much space, for everything!
De Groote Heide offers an impressive range of routes and recreational opportunities for fanatics and more relaxed types. Long or short, rough or quiet, forest or heath, with or without terrace, quiet and remote or with some people? It’s all possible. De Groote Heide is a playground for every outdoorsman; from the seated bench chair, the relaxed walker or rider, to the sweaty athlete on running shoes or bike. So much space, so many possibilities!
Paradise for outdoor people
De Groote Heide is, due to its variety and vastness, a paradise for active outdoor people. Equipped with an extensive network of hiking trails, cycle paths, bridle paths, cycling and MTB routes. For a short trip, but also for day-filling plans in which large parts of the area are crossed. And that against a backdrop of beautiful and varied nature, with forests, moors, fens, streams, brook valleys and farmland. Those who seek peace and quiet will certainly feel at home here.
