COLLECTION OF GRAVEL ROUTES

BBB is building a collection of gravel routes.  These rides start from the same meeting point at the Kiosque, which is just a few minutes ride from the vast Foret de Soignes / Zoniënwoud.
New routes are added regularly, so keep an eye out for new tracks to explore.

FAQ - ABOUT BBB GO GRAVEL

We warmly recommend that you have the day’s route .gpx file loaded on your navigation device. Gravel groups tend to split more, we don’t want to lose you, especially in the forests!
 

– Minimum 33 mm tyres with profile!⁠
– We ride, even if it’s raining or in case of poor weather.
– We do not ride in case of ice or dangerous wind.
– All traffic rules apply, no discussion, safety first! ⁠
– A helmet is mandatory. ⁠
– Spare inner tube mandatory. ⁠
– Warn and talk to each other when riding in group. ⁠
– No drop policy.

First of all, whatever the bike you’ll use, do not forget you should be able to ride between 2 or 3 hours on gravel routes before joining.

A bike with profiled tires, min width of 33 is recommended.

Can I join with a mountain bike?
Yes! About 1/4 to 1/3 of riders come on MTB.

Can I come with a commuter bike?
It’s not recommended as many of the routes involve technical sections (mud, rocks, sand, …) where a more dedicated bike helps a lot.

For sure! Should you want to raise up some suggestion, do not hesitate to get back to us.
