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 20-40 people per ride.

SUMMER EDITION | 10-07-2022

Van Nicholas organises with the Adventure Team a free, one day, no-drop, social gravel ride for Van Nicholas enthusiasts.


  • Explore the most beautiful gravel stretches in southern Limburg on our 85km loop, starting and finishing at Shimano Experience Center in Valkenburg, The Netherlands.
  • Get to know the team, see the bikes and share your stories with likeminded, passionate, adventurers.


We will meet up at Shimano Experience Center at 9am for a coffee and start the ride at 10am.


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