Classic cycling weekends. Ride the sportive one day, watch the pros the other.
These events are typically smaller than the Monuments with a more local peloton. This gives the weekend a different flavour and gives you more of a chance to delve into the local culture.
Most of these are early in the season in spring. We start the season in beautiful Siena for the unique Strade Bianche, a glorious pro race and sportive with some famous gravel sectors and a punchy finish into the town square in Siena. Next week is Paris Nice, the culmination of a week of racing for the pros but just a day for us. Then we head to Flanders to Gent Wevelgem, a must ride sportive featuring headwinds, gravel, cobbles and an 18% climb (the Kemmelberg). These are all nicely small and friendly events and make for great weekends.
With easy airport transfers, comfortable three and four-star hotels and a warm-up ride with a local guide, you really get the most out of a trip with us.

This sportive lets you experience the event through the eyes of a local. As a smaller event that the Tour of Flanders, most of the other attendees are locals.
Although there are a couple of exciting climbs to contend with, the majority of the route is flat, covering exposed lowlands and offering the perfect opportunity to take in the World War One cemeteries and battlefields. Some sections run very close to the trenches, promising an experience like no other.
