Long & Tough
Time for us to start exploring this fantastic cycling country, with a route that’ll give you all a great introduction. A few short and sharp climbs, and the odd rough section to cope with – welcome to Flanders. It’s long and tough, and when the Flanders wind blows, you’ll be working the cranks hard,so be prepared.
A trip to Flanders is ideal in the spring, watching the spring classics. You can easily add this ride to the trip and also pop over the border to Roubaix in nearby France. Anyway, follow the map and gpx and enjoy the ride. The route guide is produced as a pdf for you to download too.
