Overview

Experience the unique charms of the Hell of the North on this multi-day trip to see Paris-Roubaix.

Starting in Lille where you will enjoy lunch in the 11th century beauty of this Flemish, Burgundian and Spanish influenced city before a day visiting the famous Flanders museum. The museum is a must for cycling fans — see how cyclists used their bikes in WWI, walk through the history of the classics and try your hand at the cobbles!  With mountains of memorabilia; from Eddy Merckx’s bike and Johan Museeuw’s Mapei jersey, to a bust of Tommy Simpson and an old-school Flandria team car there’s so much to enjoy. After Flanders we will head to the Velodrome in Roubaix for photo opportunities as thousands of amateur cyclists complete the Roubaix Gran Fondo.

On race day you will be treated to breakfast in the VIP lounge and have access to the exclusive team warm-up and sign-on area. Watch the bikes being prepped ad the racers warming up as crowds stand behind barriers and you’re in the paddock with the teams.

As the riders head off we enjoy unique access to the closed race roads. We’ll have a mid-race stop to watch the race take on the cobbles, then head up to the velodrome to watch the race on giant screens before we see the cyclists as they head into the velodrome. A once in a lifetime experience!
