With the Stofwisseltour we draw attention to and raise money for more research into metabolic diseases. You can read all about it on the page metabolic diseases.
Yes: everyone is welcome. The Stofwisseltour is not a competition. In principle, you can cycle or walk at your own pace. You must be sufficiently fit to cycle at least 40 kilometers or walk 5 kilometers. The distances you can choose from are: 40, 80, 120 or 160 kilometers for cyclists, 30 or 60 kilometers for mountainbikers and 5, 10, 15 or 20 kilometers for walkers.
All routes follow cycle paths, marked cycle lanes, hiking trails or quiet, rural roads as much as possible. A beautiful, varied route has been mapped out for every distance, through nature, past villages and the city. Read all about it on the routes page.
Yes. All types of bicycles are welcome, provided that it is safe for you and other participants.
Certainly! You can help by helping the organization as a volunteer, sponsoring a participant, guiding a team or coming to cheer on. Go to the page Volunteer, Support a participant, Guides, Supporters.
Yes. We charge a registration fee per participant for participation in the Metabolism Tour. You pay this amount when you register, which can be done via iDeal.

The registration fee is required to organize the Metabolism Tour. We will give you something in return. Among other things, your own action page with which you can collect money, an attractive start and finish, a lunch (package), cycling or walking shirt and a nice memory.
Read all about it on the registration fee page.
We do not count on lunch for supporters. If, as a supporter, you still want to join us for lunch, please send us an e-mail email@example.com.
Did you not sign up for the evening buffet when you registered or are you a supporter and would you like to join us for dinner? Send an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and state how many people are involved, your name, prefix, surname, street name, house number, zip code and place of residence. We will then send you an invoice by e-mail. Pay this invoice before June 18, 2022 and you are assured of a delicious meal.
From mid-March to April 1, it is possible to order clothing through the webshop.
More information about the clothing can be found in the news item 'This will be the new cycling and walking outfit'
This is not possible. Only the logos of the charities that are beneficiaries will appear on the shirts. In addition, it is possible to print your own logo instead of the team name. We don't want a logo show on the shirts, so that there is a uniform look for Stofwisseltour.
What is possible is to have another polo, shirt or hoodie printed with the logo of the Stofwisseltour and the sponsor logos. All the more fun, because you flash by on your bike or on foot and with a drink you might prefer not to be in your sweaty shirt, but in a fresh shirt or a warm hoodie. There are costs associated with printing your extra own clothing, but our supplier has a warm heart for us, so we are happy to think along with you. We are happy to put you in touch with them.
You can register until 17 March 2023.
The new cycling and walking routes of the Stofwisseltour will be posted on the website about 1 week before the event.
Scientific research into metabolic diseases is very important but costs a lot of money. That is why we ask all participants to be sponsored. We assume that each participant will collect at least € 300. Some people are hesitant to ask others for a contribution. That may feel uncomfortable. But we know from experience that raising money is much easier than participants expect! Especially if you use our sponsorship tips.
If you receive cash as sponsorship for your participation, you can add it to your campaign page.
First deposit the money into your own bank account or put it in your wallet. Then go to your action page. And then transfer the money via your action page. This sponsorship amount is also added to all other donations for your participation in the Metabolism Tour!
Very nice to hear that you want to support a team or participant, thank you. This can be done via the page Support a participant. On this page you will find all teams and participants. Good to know: teams can be found under 'teams' and individual participants under 'actions'. Of course it is also possible to search by the name of a team or participant.
The proceeds of the Stofwisseltour are intended for research into metabolic diseases. We distribute the sponsor money to the charities involved. Read more about it on the charity page.
After your donation you will receive an automatic email with a download link of the invoice.
