2025 Spring Classics Tour with Sportive Breaks

The start of April is when the cycling world properly awakens from its winter slumber. There are all sorts of races taking place virtually daily across Northern France, Belgium and the Netherlands over this crucial period in the racing calendar, but two giant events stand out above all others. The Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix.

Both events have their own amateur cycling events taking place the day before on Saturdays. Amateur riders from all over the world come and test themselves on the same roads as the professionals the day after. Each Sportive offers a variety of distances from (nearly) full-distance challenges to shorter trips over the cobbles and bergs of Flanders and Roubaix.

Spend 12 days with us in Flanders and Roubaix on the ultimate spring classics cycling tour. Our team of local riders and mechanics will guide you around their home roads for an unforgettable experience. Not only will the cyclists in the group be well-looked after there is also plenty to do for those who don’t ride a bike themselves but are fans of this great sport.

More About Our Tour

The first Sunday of April is the date of the Tour of Flanders. The Ronde van Vlaanderen is Belgium’s biggest sporting event, boasting enormous television audiences and thronged roadsides. A week later, it’s the turn of the Queen of the Classics, Paris – Roubaix. Usually described as the world’s most famous one-day race, the “Hell of the North” has captured the public’s imagination for 120 years. The images of gaunt faces streaked with mud span the decades with a timeless quality that belongs indisputably and uniquely to Roubaix.
