Come ride with us

Join us on one of our rides to meet with other Van Nicholas riders and experience the warmth of our community. A combination of gravel and road routes with a focus on the social side of riding. There might be some beers afterwards ;-)


Social Rides

From August 2021 we started Social Rides in partnership with the Van Nicholas Adventure Team.

These are rides for road and/or gravel cyclists of all levels.


In order to create as diversified course, we will alternate the start locations.

Start of the Social Rides are usually from 10:00 AM and they last about 4 hours.

Distances of the rides vary from 60 km to 80 km and there is room for up to 25 people per ride (depending on the current Covid measures).

SPRING EDITION | 15-04-2022

Van Nicholas organises in cooperation with FFWD, a free, one day, no-drop, social gravel ride for Van Nicholas enthusiasts.


  • Explore the most beautiful gravel stretches in the Veluwe on our 85km loop, starting and finishing at De Fietser in Ede, The Netherlands.
  • Get to know the team, see the bikes and share your stories with likeminded, passionate, adventurers.


We will meet up at De Fietser at 9am for a coffee and start the ride at 10am.


After the ride, around 3pm, there's a BBQ to jumpstart your recovery and give you the opportunity to discuss the day's adventures.


Registration has closed.

Friday, 15 April 2022

We start the day with a gentle climb on forest roads. The route mixes long, straight gravel lanes with gentle rolling terrain and some opportunities to test your gravel bike’s agility on flow single track. I haven’t been able to stop smiling since I went to pre-ride the entire course last weekend. You’re up for a treat! The number of options for a quick stop are limited, but we do pass some restaurants and a camp ground where they have a supermarket.

Van Nicholas Casual Cap
The finishing touch!

Embroidered and adjustable baseball cap. Our Casual Cap, is an adjustable typical baseball cap, it has a fine fit and the size can be easily adjusted by the use of Velcro. The Van Nicholas "V" logo on the front and Van Nicholas on the back are embroidered. Material 100% Acrylic

Van Nicholas Bottle Fly
The lightest

Van Nicholas Fly is the lightest 550ml and 750ml sports bottle available worldwide. Its record 54 grams-only weight (550ml) is achieved through its variable thickness, which also makes it very soft and easy to squeeze, delivering an exceptional water flow rate with minimum effort. Van Nicholas Fly is available in Black for a perfect match with your Van Nicholas bike.

Nothing looks, Rides, Lasts like a Van Nicholas
