Gerrie Knetemann Classic - September

cycle tours

When? Sunday September 8, 2019

How far? 75km, 110km and 160km

Start location? Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Type of ride? This one’s relatively flat and goes through the ‘green heart’ of the Netherlands, past the Loosdrecht and Vinkeveen lakes. This ride honours one of the greats of Dutch cycling: Amsterdammer Gerrie Knetemann. There’s a two km time trial on the closed circuit at Sloten, at the end of the ride. Sloten is well known to local racers. Knetemann was especially good in prologues and time trials, winning 21 during his career. There are prizes for the TT winners in various categories: men and women under 23, 23-50 and over 50s. This one is particularly handy for those living in and around the Dutch capital.

Price? €20 early bird, €30 on the day
