Spring Classics Bike Tours

Experience the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix

The Spring Classics inspire reverence among cycling's hardcore elite. They combine drama, savagery, pageantry, and suffering. Join us in Belgium and Northern France to ride the famed cobbles, sip coveted Trappist beer, and enjoy a VIP race experience. Tackle Flanders' fearful sections of pavé like Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg in the Ronde van Vlaanderen Cyclo (the citizen's ride) then watch the pros battle on the same steep climbs and teeth-chattering roads. You will have access to the VIP village on Oude Kwaremont, the centre of the race, where you will be served culinary treats throughout the day while you watch this epic race. If you're up for the test, more cobbles and treachery await at the Paris-Roubaix Challenge. This incredible 11-day 2023 Spring Classics cycling tour culminates at Paris-Roubaix, with VIP seats inside the velodrome to watch as another “Hell of the North” competitor crosses the line victorious. Choose to join us for five days at the Tour of Flanders, for five days at Paris-Roubaix, or for the entire 11-day Ultimate Experience that expertly combines the two and also features access to the Trek-Segafredo service course. Whichever you choose, we promise a VIP race trip of a lifetime. Book with confidence »

Planning For Your Trip

Packing and Weather

Special race trips call for special bike setups. The Domane SL 7 Disc will be modified to handle the rigors of the Spring Classics. We recommend bringing your favorite saddle from home and SPD M540 mountain-style pedals and shoes for easy walking when you are off of the bike.

Spring in Belgium can bring all kinds of weather - cold, rain, wind, fog, or sun, therefore warm layers and a waterproof shell are highly recommended. Daytime temperatures are usually between 30F-60F. Packing List

Before and After Your Trip

before

Before: Ghent, Belgium

Consider taking time before your trip to explore the charming city of Ghent, one of the northern historical and architectural gems of Europe- with castles, sparkling canals, medieval architecture, and really good beer of course. Ghent is one of the best cities to feel Europe’s cycling culture as there are bike paths that connect the entire city and it is home to the Ghent Six Day and the opening cobbled classic of Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. It’s a mix of ancient buildings and youthful, creative energy; narrow streets and cobbled squares are full of shops, cafes, and restaurants. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:

after

After: Brussels, Belgium

Brussels has many charming and beautiful attractions, with deeply ornate buildings on the Grand-Place and the fish-and-crustacean overdose of St. Catherine’s Square. Stroll along and stop in for a drink at one of the many bars on Place St-Géry, or splurge on the trendy Rue Antoine Dansaert. Also consider extending your stay to see the charming canal town of Bruges or visiting the cultural center of Antwerp, before making your way to Brussels. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel in Brussels:
