Shuttle service OUDENAARDE » ANTWERP

A shuttle bus (with bike trailer) is laid on for participants in the 257 km from Oudenaarde to Antwerp.

This bus leaves at 05:15am, 7pm and 8pm sharp in Oudenaarde and transports you, and your bicycle, to Antwerp and you must indicate your choice when you register.

The organizer recommends that everyone avoid strenuous efforts for which they are not physically prepared. Make wise choices regarding the distance you want to cover and/or the pace you want to impose on your body.

If you want to perform sports at a high intensity, you should have yourself checked annually by a (sports) doctor. The presentation of medical certificates is not mandatory.

It is up to the athlete to decide how to deal with the information provided during a medical check-up.

The organizer bears no responsibility in this regard.
