2018 Flanders Experience

The Tour of Flanders is a cycling event unlike any other, in fact it’s a race so revered that many inside the pro peloton considered it to be the unofficial World Championships. In 2017 we witnessed more than our fair share of drama before a brilliant solo break away from Philippe Gilbert. We are not sure what 2018 will bring, but we are sure that the best way to experience all the action is by joining us for 4 days on the 2018 Flanders Experience!

Highlights:

  • 3 nights 4 star accommodation at the Marriott Hotel in Ghent
  • Return transfers from Brussels Airport
  • Entry into Tour of Flanders Sportive rides
  • Join Stuart O’Grady roadside to witness all the action of the 103rd edition of the Tour of Flanders
  • Welcome dinner

Ronde van Vlaanderen Cyclo (Flanders Sportive)

March 31, 2018

After and early breakfast we will transfer you to Oundenarde, the start and finish location for the Ronde Van Vlaanderen Cyclo sportive ride. More than 10,000 people congregate on Oundenarde each year to take part in this event – creating a festival like atmosphere in town and almost professional like support throughout the race. Today is a unique opportunity to ride the similar course to the pros, taking on iconic cobbled climbs including the Koppenberg, Oude Kwaremont and the Paterberg.

Once you have completed your chosen ride for the day we will spend the afternoon in Oundenarde. One of our stops in the afternoon will be the Flanders museum, the perfect place to relive the 103 year history of the race. Test your knowledge, learn all the facts of the iconic bergs or past winners of the race, perhaps if you still have the legs test yourself on the virtual bike simulator.

We will then transfer you back to Ghent, with the evening at your leisure.

Today’s ride: Ronde Van Vlaanderen Cyclo – 129km/71km

Tour of Flanders (Ronde Van Vlaanderen)

April 1, 2018

A day the entire country of Belgium stops for has arrived! The 103rd edition of the Tour of Flanders begins today from Antwerp and makes its way through the Flanders region and across some of the most iconic bergs in cycling. Today we will be joined by 2007 Paris Roubaix winner Stuart O’Grady who will be with us as we join thousands of die hard cycling fans on the iconic Oude Kwaremont to see the race pass three times. In 2017 the first climb up the Kwaremont was where eventual winner Phillipe Gilbert made his winning attack… who knows what the 2018 edition will bring!

At the conclusion of the race we will transfer you back to the hotel for dinner at your leisure. A great opportunity to stroll through historical old town Ghent and marvel in the beautiful architecture the city has to offer.
