Tour of Flanders 2016

Well done to all our Club Members who travelled over to Flanders in Belgium at the start of April, to take part in the Ronde van Vlaanderen Cyclo. All our riders enjoyed the Ronde van Vlaanderen Cyclo which is a tough and challenging 82 Mile ride which takes in all of the tough cobbled sections that professionals race on during the Tour of Flanders. During the trip the group were lucky to stay in the same hotel as Team Sky for the two nights, which was a great insight into what goes on at the top level of professional racing. The day after the ride the group watched the professionals during the Tour of Flanders One Day Classic, seeing the riders race up the famous Oude Kwaremont cobbled climb three times. A great weekend and recommended to any keen cyclist.
