Two options are available for you today.  All guests are transported to the finish in Ourdnaarde.  From Ourdnaarde, you can take the shuttle bus to Oude Kwaremont to watch riders road-side from the public village.

Stay in Oudenaarde

Experience the finish in the center of Oudenaarde.  Riders will pass by four times and you can experience both the men’s and the women’s finishes live and on the big screen. 

Shuttle bus to Oude Kwaremont

Board the free shuttle bus from Oudenaarde station up to the public village on the Oude Kwaremont where you can see the riders pass three times. Not as steep as the punishing Koppenberg and Paterberg climbs, but equally as important, the Kwaremont is the longest cobbled climb in the race and breeds an intense tactical battle.  There are pubs, food and beer vans and a big screen so you can alternate between standing by the road-side and watching the big screen.

More about the event

The Tour of Flanders weekend is a celebration of our sport in one of the most passionate, cycling-loving regions of the world. There are a variety of sportive distances to choose from, all including the classic finish of the Oude Kwaremont & Paterberg.

While Roubaix is all about the cobbles and the Ardennes classics are all about sharp climbs, Flanders is a mix of the two with some brutal cobbled sections and steep cobbled climbs. The most famous of these climbs are the Koppenberg, Muur & Paterberg with gradients pushing 20%. The sportive is so popular and the roads so narrow that it is a challenge to get passed the numerous riders who walk up the steep sections.

The route finishes with a long flat sprint to Oudenaarde finishing in the race village where a large beer tent and food vendors await to help you celebrate and refuel.
