La Vuelta Holland 2022

Next year, the Tour of Spain will cross no fewer than 34 Dutch municipalities over 3 days. The organization is in the hands of the cities of Utrecht, Breda and ‘s-Hertogenbosch and the provinces of Utrecht and North Brabant. Stijn Smeulders, Deputy for Culture, Sport and Heritage of the province of North Brbant: ‘That is great news! Both Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21, the cycling heroes in our province can be admired. My advice: book that weekend in advance so that you and your children can cheer on the riders on the side of the road. It’s going to be a great party.’

Mayor Sharon Dijksma of Utrecht on behalf of all public partners: ‘Great news that we now know the official start date. We have been looking forward to the start of La Vuelta Holanda for so long, now we know that it will really happen. Together with residents, entrepreneurs and our (international) guests, we will make it a wonderful event. This further strengthens the special bond between Spain and the Netherlands.’

Javier Guillén, director of La Vuelta a España

An opinion shared by Javier Guillén, director of La Vuelta a España. ‘We have been working together on this project for almost 6 years now. I am delighted that we have succeeded in enabling a start in the Netherlands after all. These months of waiting have not changed the will to work together, the enthusiasm and ambition that we have put into organizing this event from day one; which will be a milestone for Spanish and Dutch cycling.’

Program in the run

La Vuelta Holanda will start much earlier than August 2022. Various activities are organized months in advance in the transit municipalities and in other places in the regions. This makes La Vuelta Holanda much more than 3 days of top cycling. The Dutch organization is in talks with sports associations, schools, cultural institutions and entrepreneurs to explore what ideas these parties have for activities related to the international cycling event in 2022. The focus is on the themes of party, healthy urban living and sustainability. It is an extra special year for the city of Utrecht; in 2022 it will be celebrated that Utrecht has had city rights for 900 years.
