The 28th ODS Classic on 27 August 2022

The Classic is a real team building event
After the corona period it is clear to everyone: doing things TOGETHER is fun! It improves your positive mindset and increases a pleasant working atmosphere. In addition, the Classic takes place in a beautiful setting: the Limburg hills. It is a day in which sporting achievements and business meetings come together perfectly. ODS Vitaal provides professional and high-quality support at start/finish and en route. With this you give your employees an unforgettable day and your team a positive boost!

We expect another 1,350 participants this year. They will cycle over 3 distances. A real happening! The ODS Classic is known for its team participation, normally primarily for employees, family members and retirees of ODS member companies. But also this year guest teams can register as well.

The event is suitable for cycling enthusiasts of all levels. There are three distances: 75, 100 and 130 km. Three clearly marked routes through the hills of South Limburg and the Euregio.

Many facilities are included in the registration fee. The start & finish location offers fully equipped facilities: everything from parking to eating, drinking and showering. Along the route, we provide medical and technical support and extensive facilities at the breaks. Our photographers capture the event en route along the route and at the start and finish location.

The 11 golden rules


  1. Participation is only open to registered participants. You can only participate if you have a participant’s number attached to your steering wheel and/or your jersey. The number on your steering wheel must be clearly visible. The same applies to the number on your back if you attach it to your jersey.
  2. The cycling tour is not a race but a scenic ride for cyclists.
  3. Participants are regular road users and therefore obliged to follow the legal traffic rules. This also applies to cycling in groups. You are allowed to cycle next to one other cyclist, but only if this is not hindering other road users.
  4. Participants respect other road users and the local communities.
  5. Participants respect the countryside and the environment and deposit garbage (including banana peel) in the applicable containers at rest areas, start and finish.
  6. Participants are fully aware of all the risks involved in their participation. They look after their own safety and the safety of other road users.
  7. Participants cycle at their own risk. Wearing a helmet is mandatory.
  8. The use of following cars during the tour is forbidden.
  9. Participants are obliged to follow instructions of the organization without delay
  10. In case of misconduct or not observing these rules participants can be excluded from the tour they are participating in, as well as any future tours.
  11. As agreed with the judicial authorities in Maastricht, the police will take repressive action should excesses occur during the tour. Upon request the organization will hand over the personal data of the misbehaving participants to the police.
