Not a family ride.

About

For the glory and the food.

Rock Solid is an adrenaline rush over unrivalled unpaved roads topped off with tasty craft beers and artisan BBQ food.

We take off from Rock City Brewpub in Amersfoort and head out east over 125k of Gelderland’s finest gravel. A professional mechanic will be on call along the course and freshly brewed coffee is served along the way. Return to Rock City Brewpub to warm up, grab a fine homebrewed craft beer and relax over tables of delicious pub style BBQ food. Stick around and enjoy music, good company and great atmosphere.

The Route

More than 125 glorious kilometres with over 50 unpaved segments.

Exit the city of Amersfoort to the northeast and make a loop towards the Veluwe over 20k tarmac backroads. To get there we cross the Gelderse Vallei, known for its scenic farm roads and wide graveltracks. We enter the Veluwe through the magical Sprielderbos, one of the oldest forests in the country. From there we head to Kootwijkerbroek and the forest of Lunteren charging up the Goudsberg over sandy forest roads. Rock Solid 2019 leads back to Rock City through the ‘chickenvalley’ reaching the warm Brewpub with its cold craft beers after 125 hard-won kilometers.

The Rock Solid #1 route of 125k and it’s shorter version of 90k are both available on komoot. You can find them here.
