Explore Your Canvas

On Sunday May 15th the Canvas crew hosted the first edition of the Explore Your Canvas in the Veluwe. This day was all about exploring and enjoying being out. Start time  was between 9:00-11:00, so participants could choose which time to start. First some coffee of course and then the riders took off. 

North East Gravel Route

On the North East loop you'll find technical sandy tracks on the wide open plains of the Veluwe, as well as long fast double tracks. You'll see that the technical riders will have the advantage.

West Gravel Route

The west loop around Vierhouten connects a couple open hilly fields. In between these sandy sections you'll have scenic forest bike paths to recover from the cross country efforts.

South Gravel Route

The South loop through Kroondomein will be a great one for a faster pace. Long winding double tracks and a long gravel road with lovely views. It promises to be quite the scenic route.

Riders are out exploring

You could choose your own route and how far you explored. Every loop brought the riders back to our base camp, where we served plenty of locally and honestly produced food (and drinks of course) to keep the riders fuelled for the day.

We couldn't have asked for better weather. Last time we were at this location for an event it was the Maats Gravel Cup

Time for pancakes, burgers and good vibes

After arriving back at the base pancakes, burgers & drinks were waiting for the participants. The Canvas crew made sure all the food was made locally from a bakery, brewers, roasters & farmers.
