Gravel & Coffee, The podcast Test Ride

28 June 2020 @ 09:30 - 17:00



Pedaleur de Flandres Cycling Cafe will host our first after corona popup gravel ride, next Sunday. No breakfast, no cost. Just be kind and drink some coffee 😉

A 59 km gravel ride on good rolling gravel, dirt and paved roads. Good company for a nice chat will be included. The flat course should not be too technical. Our adventure will entirely be devoted on being outside together. Enjoying the roads that will bring us to the Lembeekse Bossen. Those who feel better when not riding in a group, this is of course also possible.

Because of corona there are only 15 places available inside the café, so only 15 people will be able to listen to the podcast live. So be sure to register trough the ticket link or @ derlokomotiv.com

Episode 0 from the podcast will welcome Pieter,, new in gravelbiking and now planning a first bikepacking adventure in the Ardennes inspired by the movie on bikepacking.com


and Pascal, an experienced bicycle adventurer who prefers to take his entire household on the road.

Pascal and Me, we will try to give some advise to Pieter and the listeners of the podcast.

The podcast will be live on YouTube around 15.00 and you will be able to download it on most podcast services starting the Tuesday after the event. We will talk in dutch. On YouTube English subtitles will follow later that week.

We gather with a good coffee starting 9.30 am and will ride on at 10 am.

Included in the free popup:

* A guided Social group ride with a lot of experience on Gravel, Dirt and Paved roads.
* The GPS track.
* Photo service: find images of the ride on the Gravel & Coffee Facebook / Instagram page and tag yourself.
* Live test podcast with 2 guests talking about cycling adventures.
* Everyone who participate in at least 6 Gravel & Coffee Rides in 2020, will get the exclusive Gravel & Coffee, King of the Gravel Roads T-shirt by The Vandal.

Gravel & Coffee is a series of social gravel rides organized by Der Lokomotiv, Cycling Adventures.

We have carefully chosen the roads so that we can have the best possible group experience. The ride should not be too technical but some more challenging sections can spice the ride. Our adventures will entirely be devoted on being outside together.

Mountain Bikers and the more experienced Roadies are welcome, but the track is made with Gravel Bikes in mind. So if you accompany us, be mentally prepared for a route that is not always the most suitable for your bike.

The gravel rides are unsupported, what means there will never be a car nearby or feeding stations on the way. We will have to solve our mechanical problems ourselves. So you will have to bring and carry your own stuff, but it is still a social event, so We will help each other out. We will leave no one behind.

Wearing a bicycle helmet is mandatory during our journeys

Our adventure is a social story, both to members of the group and to outsiders. Respect the highway code and be courteous to other road users. Gravel paths are excellent and often busy hiking trails, where people with children and pets experience their own adventures. A group of cyclists can quickly come across as a threat, so we kindly ask you to pass serene and say Hi. This way we can ensure that these types of journeys can continue to exist.

Gravel & Coffee is made possible thanks to the following partners:
