Experience Paris-Roubaix, Flanders and World War One
This unique tour enables you to combine the experience of riding some of the iconic stages of the cobbled classics whilst taking in some of the historic sites of World War One. You will be fully supported and guided throughout and experience a real flavour of the races, the area, its food and history.
The classic races of Paris-Roubaix (Hell of the North), the Tour of Flanders, and Gent-Wevelgem run over the famous (or infamous) cobbled roads, known for their unforgiving nature. We take you to ride some of the classic stretches of these races, and complete the experience by riding the famous finish line of Paris-Roubaix - the Roubaix velodrome. Whether you just want to experience these with the assurance of full support or you also want to learn how to ride the cobbles we will make this an experience you will never forget.
With the 100th anniversary of World War One we have designed this tour so that as you ride you will visit some of the most iconic places on the Ypres Salient and learn about their history. Staying in Ypres itself means that you will be able to attend the last post ceremony at the Menin Gate which is a thought provoking and moving event. The hotel is situated in the centre of Ypres which gives you the opportunity to explore this beautiful city and we will ensure that you enjoy some of the best it has to offer. Whilst here we will take you to try the typical and hearty local food and maybe the "occasional" Belgian beer!
