The 5th edition of the BXL TOUR, the 40 km bike race through the streets of the capital, takes place on the 29th of August.
With a route identical to last year’s, it will cross several municipalities in Brussels and will allow participants to (re)discover our beautiful capital by bike.
With this event, the City of Brussels also emphasizes its desire to encourage active mobility.
The event will be organized with respect for the sanitary rules.
Following the health measures announced on Monday 19.07 by the CODECO for events with more than 1500 people, practical information will be communicated as soon as possible.
The fifth BXL TOUR was held on Sunday 29 August 2021. 3,258 entrants (111 cyclists in the Master category and 3,147 in the Cyclos category) took part in the 40-km bike race through the city, confirming its growing popularity and broad appeal.
The race was launched by its ambassador Eddy Merckx. He also presented the winners with trophies made from the trunk of the Christmas tree that took pride of place on Grand-Place in 2020, which had been transformed into works of art by local cartoonist Philippe Geluck.
BXL TOUR crossed several areas of Brussels, enabling participants to (re)discover our capital from their saddle in exceptional conditions.
The event promotes pedal power, takes sport to the streets and makes it as accessible as possible. It also allows the City of Brussels to highlight its commitment to diversity and inclusion.
We hope to see you at the next one!
