Flanders Weekend

The Tour of Flanders is a day the entire country of Belgium congregate to celebrate and support professional cycling at its very greatest. It’s one of the most prestigious one-day races on the World Tour and with that, year after year continues to deliver jaw-dropping, aggressive, edge-of-your-seat bike racing. A true battle for honours, that leaves only the strongest of them all sensationally fighting to the finish, staging a dramatic display of athleticism, skill and determination.

Cobbles, relentlessly steep Belgian bergs, narrow roads, more cobbles and at times, extremely challenging conditions. It’s absolutely no race for the faint hearted! The question is – are you game enough to see for yourself?

In 2020, we’ll be delivering the ultimate Flanders Weekend experience that will have you diving right in to the addictive, lively Classics atmosphere, onto riding the race course yourself in the official Flanders sportive and witnessing LIVE the sheer thrill and beauty combined of the incredible ‘Ronde’.

Suited to spectators and cyclists alike, this will assuredly be a weekend you’ll all be raving home about.

Highlights:

  • Hosted by 2007 Paris-Roubaix winner Stuart O’Grady
  • 3 nights  premium accommodation through Belgium
  • Return transfer – pick-up from Brussels airport, drop-off Ghent train station
  • Entry into the Tour of Flanders Sportive ride
  • Witness the Tour of Flanders (Ronde van Vlaanderen) LIVE
  • Exclusive ride and drinks with the legendary ‘Lion of Flanders’ Johan Museeuw
