World Cycling Championships 2021

It is no more news that the World Cycling Championships are coming to Leuven, Belgium! The big news, however, is that Leuven has never hosted a major sporting event. This means the duration of the championships is going to be huge and a one big cycling party in Leuven, for Leuvenaars and everyone else.

How to Get to Leuven for the World Cycling Championships 2021

The center is difficult to reach by car. Come as much as possible on foot, by bike or by public transport.

Preferably park your bicycle outside the ring road. An extra bicycle shed will be built at the front of the OHL stadium (Tervuursevest).

Can’t come by bike? Then you have to park outside the city. Center and peripheral car parks are difficult to reach from 23 to 26 September 2021. There will be parking for visitors outside the ring road, but it is limited. Follow the signs on the approach roads.
