Bike to Close the Gap 2017
This 2017 edition of Bike to Close the Gap is organized and sponsored by Close the Gap, DNS Belgium and GUIDO. They join forces once again to make sure the digital gap is narrowed, together with you on June 29th 2017.
Bike to Close the Gap is a sporting event, but certainly not a competition. We’re not cycling against each other, but with each other and with a common goal: raise funds to provide access to ICT to disadvantage children and young adults in Europe and in developing countries.
Last year, we raised 105.000 euros, and this time, we’re aiming even higher! And for that, we’re counting on you!
Have a look at our sponsoring packs and invite the employees, friends & partners of your company to conquer the famous Paterberg and help us bridge the digital divide.
And the winners are…
We are not cycling against each other, but with each other, for a common goal. The winners are the children and young adults in developing countries, who thanks to our efforts, get a chance to discover the wondrous world of ICT.
For the second year in a row, we have a very special ambassador supporting the event! The Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Development and Digital Agenda, Mr. Alexander De Croo has honored us with this role!

The event will be followed by a barbecue. It’s the best way to digest the cycled kilometres and to network with the people from DNS Belgium and other (IT or not) companies.
