Hell of Brabant Ride
At Sunday April 15 we bring an ode to the cobble classics with our annual Hel van Brabant ride! The ride takes us over 20 (!) sectors of cobbles with a total of more than 17.5 kilometres of 'pavé'. We depart from Den Bosch at Bolwerk and head out to the cobbles of the west of Brabant. Some of the notorious or historical significant sectors are described in the book Koersen over Kasseien en Kiezelstenen by Martijn Sargentini. For example, the Watertorenstraat and Hoge Zeedijk will definitely give you the 'Flandrien' vibe!
After the cobbles we will enjoy a drink together at Bolwerk and watch the final of the Amstel Gold Race!
Ride leader Bram de Vrind organizes this ride free of charge. However, he would really appreciate it if you donate to Klimmen Tegen MS for research in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. Bram is planning to climb Mont Ventoux 3 times to raise funds for KTMS this June. You can follow him via his Facebook page @De Fietsjournalist. You can donate via this link. All donors will get a free Rapha goody bag.
Details: 165km, 20 cobble sections with a total of 17.5km
