Spring Classics: Flanders Bike Tour

Experience the Legendary Tour of Flanders

The Spring Classics inspire reverence among cycling's hardcore elite. They combine drama, savagery, pageantry, and suffering. Join us in Belgium to ride the famed cobbles, sip coveted Trappist beer, and enjoy a VIP race experience. Tackle Flanders' fearful sections of pavé like the Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg in the Ronde van Vlaanderen Cyclo, then watch the pros battle on the same steep climbs and teeth-chattering roads. The trip will wind up in Kortrijk, where you can put yourself to the test on the fabled sectors of the Paris-Roubaix route just days before the pros will ride there. This incredible trip promises bucket-list climbs, cycling culture at its finest, and memories abound in your VIP race trip of a lifetime. Book your trip with confidence »

Enjoy lunch at a nearby brasserie or take the chance to explore Grote Markt before taking a casual ride to the Netherlands with the avid option to the North Sea. Tonight, meet your guides and fellow travelers for drinks and learn about the week ahead before you explore the historic town of Bruges and indulge in a bistro meal. We recommend heading to bed early in anticipation of an incredible (albeit early) day tomorrow.

This is the hill where only the best riders can make a difference.

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: Bruges, Belgium

Consider taking time before your Spring Classics cycling tour to explore the charming city of Bruges, with its canals, stone footbridges, gabled buildings, turrets, and medieval architecture. Be sure to not miss the many bistros on either of the two main squares, the “Market” and the “Burg.” The Burg is home to a 14th-century masterpiece, the town hall. The city boasts numerous museums, with collections ranging from Flemish Primitives to contemporary artists and everything in between. The city is very pedestrian-friendly and you will not be disappointed with a stay here. 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. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel:
