Cycling to Serve

Dear friends of Cycling to Serve,

It is a great honour for us (Rotary club Heist-opden- Berg) to organise the World Championships for Rotarians in Belgium in 2014.

We want to turn this 30th Edition into a fantastic celebration.

Our organisation is almost fully tuned and therefore we want to make all of you acquainted with the unique surroundings of Heist-op-den-Berg and Mechelen.

In order to allow everyone to find a place to stay and in order to organise all the related festivities, we chose to welcome all of you in Mechelen, a nearby town between Antwerp and Brussels.

Mechelen, only a 15 minute drive from Brussels Airport, is a very cosy town with medieval buildings and monuments. You will be able to get around town on foot and find everything you need within walking distance.

The tour of the championship is in the green surroundings of Heist-op-den-Berg. In the middle of this countryside, we expect a fierce battle for the various world titles.

To support our organisation, Eddy Merckx, the greatest champion of all times, agreed to accept the sponsorship of our organisation. This is a tremendous honour for our club. This will be a great stimulus for us to make these championships a success.

We are already anxiously awaiting your arrival!

Rotarian greetings,
President of the organising Committee.
