Interested in becoming a member?

If you are interested in becoming a member of Dutch Mountains (DM), you are always welcome to join a training. A valid UM Sports membership or Try Five subscription is required; for more details see the “Membership” section.

The current training times can be found at the right side of the website. If you would like to participate in a DM training session, just send a request by email to dm.maastricht@gmail.com. You can borrow a racing bike or mountain bike from DM if you don’t have a bike by yourself. A helmet (mandatory) or shoes can also be borrowed.

Membership

You can also give it to a board member during a training or activity, or send it via email to dm.maastricht@gmail.com .

Due to subsidies, we only accept members who possess a UM Sports membership; the ‘Sports’ and ‘Sign-up’ add-ons are required. Students from another institution of higher education are also eligible for signing up to UM Sports, as well as students temporarily residing in Maastricht for an internship/exchange. Members are allowed to be part of DM for up to two years after their graduation. Try Five subscribers may participate in up to 5 DM training sessions during the Try Five weeks.
