Is This Trip For Me?
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 first Sunday of April is the date of the Tour of Flanders. 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.
Spend 10 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.
EXCELLENT HOTELS: Stay with us for 6 nights in Oudenaarde in Flanders, the best place to start for the Tour of Flanders & Flanders Sportive. Then stay in Roubaix for 4 nights within a couple of miles of the famous velodrome. Breakfasts, lunches on some days and evening meals are all included.
