BELGIUM BACKROADS, BEERS & PAVÉ

 

Riding in Belgium doesn’t have to be a gritty, grey, cold, drizzly slog as the cycling cliché would have you believe, it can be quite nice. Very nice actually. For this late summer trip, we’ll ride all the Flandrian roads and cobbled sections made famous by the Spring Classics of the Pro race calendar but in the warmth and sunshine. Very un-epic.

Based in a 4 star Hotel in the historic and cultural centre of Ghent our first day will see us spin the legs along the Schelde river to visit the Ronde van Vlaanderen Museum in Oudenaarde and get a taste of the history of the racing here (and maybe a coffee and rijsttaart) before hitting the fabled cobbled climbs of the Kwaremont, Koppenberg, Paterberg and a few cheeky ones you’ve never even heard of. In the evening there will be a chance to wander the winding back streets of Ghent and partake of hearty local food and of course, work your way through some of the famous Belgian beers.

After necessary coffees the next morning and possible bike shop perusing there will be a ride to suit the more rouleur cyclist as we visit the BMC race team Service Course and throw in the celebrated Muur for good measure. Two 120km days that will definitely feel a little longer and longer in the legs.
