BRUSSELS BIG BRACKETS

We welcome all cycling enthusiasts willing to join a multicultural Brussels based peloton and to share their passion.

We offer a schedule of Sunday cycling tours throughout the year. We participate as a group in various tours organised under the VWB, Cycling Vlaanderen and FFBC calendars. We sometimes organise a trip or weekend tour and, of course, some social events as well.
