Ride past Achterhoek and Twente mansions

On Sunday August 14, 2016  our members Maarten and Olav are taking you with them for a GCCC ride to a part of the Netherlands unfamiliar to most of us, i.e. the  Twente and the Achterhoek regions. A gem of a ride through the beautiful east part of our country. Enjoy the Twente hospitality!

Where is the start and the finish?

You are more than welcome at the start address between 12.00 and 12.30 h. The exact address will be forwarded to GCCC members in a separate email. On arrival coffee/tea is provided accompanied by authentic local pastry. After a pleasant ride through Achterhoek and Twente we’ll be back at our starting point round about five p.m.. Along the way there is plenty of time for a visit to a mansion or for something to eat or drink (at your own expense). For those who have booked in advance a three course dinner will be waiting at around  6 p.m. for € 25 (drinks not included).


As usual, payment is done in advance. members pay € 5,– and guests €7,50, which includes coffee/tea with local pastry on arrival.


The dinner will take place at the restaurant where we started from. The three course dinner has a choice of:


Fresh vegetable soup or
