Maats Cycling Culture

Maats Gravel Escape

Regular price €15.00

Maats Utrecht 

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.

In the past, riding a gravel route from our original store location in Amsterdam posed quite a challenge, and that's why we are so happy with our new shop in Utrecht. Finally we have a place where you are on the first unpaved section within a few kilometers.

During the autumn and winter months, we proudly organize the Maats Gravel Escape. Because it can be busy in the surroundings of Utrecht, spots are limited: with a maximum of 25 participants, we ride in small groups of 5-6 people. Start and finish at Maats Utrecht.
