Cycle racing/ Mountain biking

Your sports membership opens the door to the world of (competitive) cycling.


Tilburg's student cycling association is De Meet, founded on 3 August 1978. Every keen cyclist with a sports membership is invited to join. Our members include enthusiastic beginners and cyclists who take part in major competitive events practically every week.

De Meet organizes training sessions (most supervised by a certified coach) at the TWC Pijnenburg velodrome in de Reeshof, in the field and on the track.

Our members regularly take part in classic events such as the Amstel Gold Race, the Tour of Flanders and La Marmotte. In the winter, we organize our own field tours to keep in shape and take part in the spinning classes offered by the Sports Center.

If you are interested in mountain biking, please contact

Social activities form an important part of association life. De Meet organizes regular get-togethers for its members, whether a relaxed evening on a café terrace after a hard training session, a barbecue, or a weekend away in some picturesque spot at the end of the cycling season.
