At the end of 2017 I bought my first gravel bike, initially as a bike for bad weather and to take on holidays. Soon my mountain bike and racing bikes disappeared further and further into the back of the garage. Discovering gravel singletrack, gravel roads and sandy paths in the area around Breda became an addiction. The logical next step was, of course, to tie all of these strips together into beautiful routes.

In this Collection you will find a series of routes around Breda which are most enjoyable on a gravel bike. Of course you can also ride a mountain bike, but you won't get far with a road bike! I have created all of these routes for events and they have been ridden many times by myself.

All routes start and end at Kamu Bikes & Coffee in Breda, my favorite coffee and bicycle shop in Breda. The routes vary in distance and cover all directions around Breda. It is not very technical anywhere, but it is beautiful, so both novice and advanced gravel riders can indulge themselves.

    This is the route of the first gravel ride I organized. For weeks in a row I have been puzzling to find as many unpaved strips as possible and to make a nice route. In these weeks I also discovered komoot.

    

    The morning of this ride felt like my own children's party; hopefully some people will come, hopefully

    I made this round for a test event of Kamu and J.Guillem Bicycles. From Kamu you head north to the windy polders around Breda. Here, sandy paths, paved roads, gravel strips, single tracks, tight asphalt and a stray cobblestone strip follow each other in rapid succession. Then you turn back to the wooded

    I drew this route for the best cycling event in Breda. Every year, Tour de Fransje takes place on the last Sunday of the Tour de France. A combination of a tour, competition and festival.

    

    Like the Tour, the route is very tough and, like the Tour of 2019, it partly runs through Belgian territory. Via the

    A unique cross-border gravel route between Turnhout and Breda. The route is largely unpaved and contains parts of the annual gravel trip Strada Campina, in the Belgian Kempen, and the most beautiful strips in the border area between Breda and Turnhout. Halfway there is a break option at Eetcafe at Barzoen

    Expert bike ride. Very good fitness required. Some portions of the Tour may require you to push your bike.

    This is the long route of the fall edition of the Kamu Gravelride in 2019.

    

    From Kamu you head north to the windswept polders around Breda. Here, sandy paths, cobblestone roads, gravel strips, singletrack and a cobblestone strip follow each other in rapid succession. Then you turn back to the wooded area
