This is the second edition of the Oostkapelle 4 Day Cycling Event on the beautiful Walcheren. You will undoubtedly have cycled around this beautiful Zeeland island before. We have prepared 4 extraordinary routes for you. There will be a checkpoint around halfway on each route, where you will also have the opportunity to take a break.

All the tours will be exploring a part of Walcheren. One tour will take you to Neeltje Jans, one to Veere and one will even be going as far as Vlissingen/Ritthem. Of course one of the tours will also be taking you along the Walcheren coastline. Plus there are also shorter 20-25 km routes on offer on Wednesdays and Saturdays. So very suitable for families with children.

This edition will be organised by enthusiastic volunteers, who have already gained experience with organising various different running events and who have regularly participated with various 4 day cycling events themselves. All this in collaboration with Campsite de Pekelinge and Grand Cafe de Pekelinge. The campsite is profiling itself with the use of its sports and adventure programme and has also entered into a collaboration with Sportdorp (Sports Village) Oostkapelle. Grand Cafe de Pekelinge has been supporting the Middelburg town walk for many years and also sponsors 2 football teams. Plenty of connections with sports and exercise and with our beautiful island of Walcheren, for which we have created 4 fantastic tours for you to enjoy.
