FAQ

Eifel Cycling Classic

When will the Eifel Cycling Classic take place?

Traditionally, we organize the Eifel Cycling Classic every year on the third weekend of September. In 2021 it will take place from 17 – 20 September at Center Parcs Park Eifel.

What distances can I choose from?

There is a choice of three different distances, namely 50, 100 and 150 kilometers.

For whom is participation in the Eifel Cycling Classic suitable?

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 within which the participants have to cross the finish line, so drive your own ride and set your own challenge.

Can the routes be downloaded as a GPX file?

The GPX files will be sent to all participants in the final email. Of course we always ensure that it is on our laptop, so that it can also be placed on the spot.

Are the routes the same every year?

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

When will I receive more information?

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

When will I receive my start number?

You will receive the start 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 collect your starting ticket at the reception before the start of the tour.

As a supporter, do I also have to pay registration fees?

Participation in the Eifel Cycling Classic is not mandatory. Per registration, the number of people in the booking versus the number of participants is considered. We only charge an additional amount of € 49 per person for the participants.

E.g. you book a 4-person Comfort cottage and come with 2 adults and 2 children, of which only 1 person will be cycling.

I have registered, but would like to change something. Where can I go?

It is best to send an email to  ecc.bng@groupepvcp.com or contact us by telephone on +31 (0) 10 – 49 89 579. It is also possible to fill in the contact form at the bottom of this website.

Where can I store my bike at night?

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

Can I only participate in the cycling tour without staying overnight?

No, we offer a package based on 3 nights, because our starting point is that the cycling tour can be ideally combined with a weekend away with family / (cycling) friends / colleagues. For this reason it is not possible to only participate in the tour on Saturday and in addition to the cycling tour we also offer the following with the ECC package:

  • Social ride (approximately 50 km) on Friday afternoon from 15:30 / 15:45 with cyclists from Delta Cycling Rotterdam;
  • Gravel ride (80 to 90km) on Saturday
  • Kick-off on Friday evening including welcome drink;
  • Possibility to cycle another KM route on Sunday (on your own and therefore without provisioning posts), because the signage remains.

Can I also participate in the Eifel Cycling Classic with a group?

Certainly! 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 are happy to think along with you. For example, 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 email to  ecc.bng@groupepvcp.com ; we would be happy to contact you.
