BRUSSELS BIG BRACKETS

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

BBB includes both a recreational group and a performance section

Our Cycling Club welcomes members with diverse cycling skills and ambition: easy riders, sharp cyclosportifs, competitors, etc. 

The recreational section offers 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.

BBB Racing accommodates all cyclists who aim at improving to competition level. We organise structured training rides and race-oriented training sessions. BBB Racing targets riders of all abilities interested in any kind of competition: ECW races, gran fondos, sportives, time trials, gravel, etc.
