Eifel Cycling Classic

  • Traditionally, we organize the Eifel Cycling Classic every year on the third weekend of September. The tour itself will take place this year on Saturday, September 21, 2019.

  • The Eifel Cycling Classic is driven from Center Parcs Park Eifel in Germany.

    Address:

    Center Parcs Park Eifel

    Am Kurberg

    D-56767 Gunderath

  • There is a choice of three different distances, namely 50, 100 and 150 kilometers. The routes will be announced via our Facebook page and via this website.

  • Because you can choose between 50, 100 and 150 kilometers, you choose your own challenge. This makes the Eifel Cycling Classic suitable for novice cyclists to seasoned cyclists! There is no time slot in which the participants must cross the finish line, so drive your own ride and determine your own challenge.

  • The GPS files of the routes can be downloaded via this website. When the files have been added to the website, we will also announce this via our Facebook page. In addition, all our participants will receive an email with the latest info in September, including of course the routes!

  • No, the routes are not exactly the same every year. We strive to show our participants as much of the surroundings as possible and also want to keep it surprising for the loyal ECC fans every year!

  • Two weeks before the Eifel Cycling Classic takes place, more information about this event will be sent to you by email. Updates will also be posted on our Facebook page.

  • You will receive the starting number at the kick-off on Friday evening. If you arrive at Center Parcs Park Eifel later in the evening (or perhaps even the next morning), you can pick up your starting ticket at the reception before the tour starts.

  • No, this is not mandatory, because only an additional amount of € 49 per person is charged for the people participating in the Eifel Cycling Classic. On the registration form you can indicate, for example, that you want to book a 4-person Comfort cottage and want to participate with only two people.

  • It is best to send an e-mail to ecc.bng@groupepvcp.com or contact us by telephone on +31 (0) 10 – 49 89 579 or +31 (0) 10 49 89 756. It is also possible to complete the contact form on this website.

  • Your bikes are of course very valuable. That is why you can park the bicycles in the (storage of the) cottages. Obviously try to keep the cottages as clean as possible, even after you there are guests who wish to enjoy their stay!

  • No, we offer a package deal based on 3 nights, because our starting point is that the cycling tour can be ideally combined with a weekend away together with family / (cycling) friends / colleagues.

    For this reason it is not possible to only participate in the tour on Saturday and we also offer the following in addition to the cycling tour with the ECC package:

    • Social ride (approx. 50 km) on Friday afternoon from 15:30 / 15:45 with cyclists from Delta Cycling Rotterdam; Kick-off on
    • Friday evening including a welcome drink;
    • Possibility to cycle another KM route on Sunday (on your own and therefore without billing stations), because the signage is stuck.
  • Sure! You have come to the right place for an original company outing or a unique cycling tour for your club. If you come with a group of 10 people or more, we would like to think along with you. This way we can arrange cottages next to each other, so that you and your company or association form your own street in the park. In consultation, we may even be able to offer something extra for your group. Send an e-mail to ecc.bng@groupepvcp.com; we will be happy to contact you.

  • Of course! We have also taken the late decision makers into account and we reserve a few starting numbers for people who might decide to participate on the spot. Please note: this number of starting numbers is limited, so register in advance to be sure of participation!
