Rides & Events
Events & rides are playing an important role within Maats since day one. It's the perfect way to get to know new people and discover new routes in an accessible way. Events have proven to be the perfect tool for building the Maats community of which we are extremely proud. Our events consist of monthly social rides, gravel events, trips abroad and sometimes even a race. Join us on a future ride or event!

On this weekend last year, we opened our shop's doors at the Twijnstraat.

Maats AMS 5 years Anniversary Ride
Saturday April 8th, 10:00am
On Saturday, April 8 it's party time! Exactly 5 years ago we opened the doors of our store on the van Woustraat in Amsterdam. We have organized hundreds of different social rides in recent years, but a 5th anniversary is a milestone!
We will create a route along iconic places in the history of Maats. Think of our pop-up store on the Czaar Peterstraat, the race track of Ulysses where we have organized some races, a touch of Hoep, you name it! We are going to ride a route of approx. 85km in different groups.
You only turn 5 once, and you're invited!Reserveer je plek!

Maats Checkpoint Challenge
Saturday March 25th, 09:00am
After a successful first edition last November, the Maats Checkpoint Challenge is back for its second instalment. We've found another 10 amazing checkpoints that will take you in a new direction from our Utrecht store. This challenge (or race for some) is all about planning, route skills and teamwork. There’s no route, just 10 checkpoints (CPs) that are worth a visit for you and your teammate. You connect these checkpoints to create your own route.
Are you up for the challenge? Team up & and join us on Saturday March 25th in Utrecht.Reserveer je plek!

Maats Gravel Escape
Once a month on Saturday, 09:30
Maats Utrecht, Twijnstraat 7
At Maats we are big fans of gravel rides. Whereas road cycling is more about speed, distance and performance, a gravel bike gives you the freedom to choose any path you encounter, making it more about exploring, adventure and fun.
We created some nice gravel routres with start from and finish in our Utrecht Store. We start with coffee before the ride and end with the Utrecht local legend lunch from Broodje Mario afterwards. What a time to be alive! Costs are €15 including coffee and lunch.
