Wielrennen in Limburg

Cycling weekend cycling Buchten in beautiful Limburg

During the annual 3-day cycling weekend in Buchten, cycling enthusiasts like to go to Buchten.

Cycling Committee Buchten, a foundation founded in the year 1966, organizes annual cycling activities for professionals up to and including recreational cyclists and youth. The church village of Buchten, with a rich cultural and sporting history, is part of the merged municipality of Sittard-Geleen.
The annual cycling activities are made possible thanks to the generous

Support from the board of this 'cycling-minded' municipality. In addition, every year we can look forward to the extensive support we receive from all sponsors and benefactors. And last but not least, the intensive collaboration of local volunteers and associations!
Every year, after months of preparations, the more than twenty members of our committee make a huge effort to make this large-scale event a resounding success.

This is for the cycling enthusiasts along the side, the inhabitants of the region as well as the participating athletes.
