ODS MTB Tour on 10 March 2024

Get ready for the ultimate ODS MTB Tour with Berg en Terblijt as the new start and finish location!

This year, we are taking the adventure to the next level by introducing not one, but two brand new gravel routes. For the gravel enthusiasts among us, we have put together routes of 45 km and 72.5 km that take you through our beautiful Limburg landscapes. Discover the unique character of gravel riding, challenging yourself on unpaved roads, winding paths and maybe even a few challenging climbs. Graveling guarantees an exciting mix of speed, control and a connection with nature you won’t soon forget.

ODS also offers two fantastic mountain bike routes! Choose from a 45 km route for a thrilling ride or go for the challenge of the 65 km route.

These MTB routes are for mountain bikers of all levels. So, put on your cycling gear, put yourself to the test and above all, enjoy yourself during the ODS MTB Tour 2024. After the finish, we warmly invite you to gather around the fire pits and enjoy tasty treats straight from the barbecue. Relax, taste the satisfaction of the day and share pleasant conversations with fellow cyclists.

We are working with a maximum number of participants, so grab your chance before February 29 and secure yourself a spot. Click on the sign-up link for a day of fun and adventure with your colleagues or partner!
