The name says it all: We are going to cycle and have fun. And we are committed to Make-A-Wish the Netherlands. We do that on Sunday, September 10, 2017 on the beautiful Utrecht Hill Ridge. In the area of Doorn, where the Cape Doorn conference center will serve as a start, finish, and festival location.
The Lean Consultancy Group pays all organization costs, so the full registration fee (35 €) and all the collected sponsor money goes to the Make-A-Wish foundation. The previous four editions of our event in Berg en Dal (OudeHolle40) together yielded an amount of € 65,000.
SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 10, 2017
On the festival site we put a large screen with the traffic, last lap times, total kilometers and total revenue. You can get sponsored per kilometer. How much are your mileage worth? Ask your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you via www.fietsendoornfestival.nl/sponsoren .
We start at 9:00 am in the parking lot of Conferentiecentrum Kaap Doorn (Postweg 9, Doorn) and cycle an 18 km lap with the ascent of the Ruiterberg and then the ascent on Wykerweg. As a change we pass the rural Langbroekerdijk and the vowels of the winding Sandenburgerlaan back to Cape Doorn.
Between 8:00 and 9:00 we are present to hand out the starting numbers with bike chips. The Cape Doorn parking lot is literally ON the course. We are setting up the feeding post here. During the trip you can decide yourself when and how often you use it. There is first aid, bicycle repair and a sports masseur. The volunteers of the Make-A-Wish foundation are present all day. Spectators can gather here and in the afternoon between 2:30 PM and 6:00 PM they can eat and drink on the festival grounds. There is a terrace and music. A food truck makes pasta meals for riders and the public. You can drink at the bar, there is a bitter garnish and activity for the children is arranged. Around 17:00 we raise the glass to the total yield of the day.
