Weekend Highlights

Weekend Highlights

  • Stay in Oudenaarde: Most Flanders weekends are based in Ghent or Kortrijk. Oudenaarde is where the sportive starts & finishes & the pro race ends so you don't need to spend the weekend driving around and fighting the traffic.

  • Guided warm up ride on the cobbles: On Friday afternoon we ride with our local guide over the cobbles on a short route taking in the Kwaremont, Koppenberg & Paterberg.

  • Mechanical support: Our expert mechanics are on hand all weekend or rent one of our bikes.

Reviews

Tour of Flanders

The Tour of Flanders weekend is a fantastic celebration of our sport by one of the most passionate cycling loving regions on earth. There are a variety of sportive routes available, all including the classic finish of the Oude Kwaremont & Paterberg.
While Roubaix is all about cobbles and the Ardennes classics are all about sharp climbs, Flanders is a mix of the two with some brutal cobbled sectors and steep cobbled climbs. The most famous of these are the Koppenberg, Muur & Paterberg with gradients pushing 20%. The sportive is so popular and the roads so narrow that on these climbs it is a challenge to get passed the numerous riders that walk up the steep sections.
The route finished with a long flat sprint to Oudenaarde finishing in the race village with a large beer tent and food vendors to help bring your energy back.
