2023 marks the fifth anniversary of LtD Gravel Raid. When it comes to routes, the Eifel region, especially around Hellenthal, is the gift that keeps on giving. Our routemeister manages to come up with new, challenging routes every edition.
We don’t want to compare everything with food, but in this case we do: making routes is like cooking. It’s about the perfect mix of ingredients to create the best result. The ingredients of LtD Gravel Raid routes are: easy to ride gravel paths, beautiful forest roads, challenging climbs and fantastic views.
On Saturday - Race Day - we’ll be offering two routes, each consisting of two loops: a morning loop and afternoon loop. Each loop has a feed station on the route. After the first loop you return to the LtD Gravel Raid Festival site for an extensive BBQ lunch. Are you into Ride Fast? Race at four timed segments and win great prizes powered by our partners.
On Friday and Sunday it's all about party pace. Discover the Eifel region with friends and family in our DIY rides or no-drop social rides.
Check the map of 2022 to get an indication of the routes.
Switching between distances and routes? No problem. Anything goes! Are you done and dusted after the morning loop? Just enjoy lunch and the festival program at Wildbach Camping.
Festival, food, family. That’s a lot of live slow. But we also want to deliver on the ride fast part! That’s why LtD himself came up with timed segments. A fresh format of racing. Marked time segments where you can race and go hard. Then regroup with your friends, fuel up, and gear up for the next segment. Let’s put the good times into racing.
Challenge your friends, the riders near you or pro’s like Laurens ten Dam and Thomas Dekker. Is that too ambitious… The story goes that Stefan Bolt is beatable. And yes, there are great prizes to win! Are you the fastest boy or girl in class?
Open roads, so traffic laws apply! Race like you race on Strava, use your head, respect nature, respect your fellow riders and be nice! Wear an approved helmet at all times. Riders must be 16 years or older at the event date.
Leave your email address and we will let you know asap when the date is set and the registration is open.
