Got the cycling bug? Need a destination that caters for both the novice and the seasoned Lycra-clad pro? Flanders might just be the holiday destination for you.
Counting Eddy Merckx as one of the many cyclists to have honed their craft on the region’s pathways, Flanders has serious cycling heritage. The Ronde de Flanders is now an internationally renowned event, and a perfect opportunity to see the professionals doing what they do best.
That said, Flanders also provides a fun, accessible introduction to the world of cycling – with the iconic Retro Ronde the perfect blend of fun and competition. Encapsulating the spirit of an era bygone, the event is strictly to participants using vintage equipment and clothing. Moustaches, thankfully, are optional.
