Our Spring Classics trip provides the ideal mix of “ride more – transfer less”.
The proximity of France, Belgium, Netherlands in this border region allows us to participate in the “must do” Tour of Flanders sportif and Paris – Roubaix Challenge. Plus midweek you’ll ride the final 80-100km of the other famous Spring Classics courses, La Flèche Wallonne in Belgium, Amstel Gold Race in the Netherlands and Liège–Bastogne–Liège in Belgium.
You’ll have your fill of riding, plus we’ll visit the Tour of Flanders Museum, the Amstel Gold Experience center, the emotional “Last Post” at the Menin Gate Memorial to honour the fallen British and Commonwealth soldiers.
We’ll also see different aspects of the Spring Classics races, including stage starts, midpoints, feed stations, stage finishes, mixed with a cultural, historic, culinary and beverage experience of Belgium, Netherlands and northern France.
April is a beautiful time to visit and ride the Spring Classics. The atmosphere at the races at this time of year is unrivalled, the Belgium, Netherlands and northern France fans create an electric atmosphere, we’ll show you the smaller roads, ride the iconic Spring Classic climbs, see famous monuments, picture postcard villages, beautiful cities and stay in lovely hotels.
There’s something edearing about riding a bike in Belgium, Netherlands and France, they are countries practically born and raised on two wheels. The terrain is almost purpose-built for cyclists and cycling is still regarded as each nation’s number one sport in Spring.
