The Spring Classics are just that – Classic. Contested in Europe’s northern countries, these are the longest, and often cruelest, events on the calendar. For that reason, they’re also the most feared and respected in the pro peleton.
Join us for an intimate view and cycling experience at the Hell of the North. Imagine being so close to a pro that you can ask any question, and get a real answer. Ride with Marty Jemison, a former top Spring Classics & Tour de France rider, and discover for yourself what it is that makes these spring races so special and demanding.
The spectacle of these races is one thing – to see them and ride some of these epic routes, is something not many cyclists could ever imagine. We’re here to guide you over the challenging cobbles, up the simple, yet mind-bending burgs (muur aka climbs) that will provide a reason to celebrate each day.
We invite you to be a part of this incredible race experience. The Spring Classics Bike Tour consists of riding over cobbles, climbing the Muur and flying over the wooded hills of Liege. Of course, watching the famed races of: Paris-Roubaix, Fleche Wallone & Liege-Bastogne-Liege.
This is a perfect trip for a few of your friends and riding buddies! Contact us directly about private tour options.
Surprisingly, Belgium boasts some of the best “bites” on the planet, including spaghetti bolognese.
To give you an idea of the seriousness of this dish, look no further than the local cafe that bakes the pasta dish, smothered in cheese. And if you have a sweet tooth, you can follow up your meal with a Dame Blanche, vanilla ice cream covered in melted Belgian chocolate.
There are over 200 breweries in Belgium, plus countless home breweries. Belgians take their beer seriously and feature abbey, trappist, ales and more. Many of our guests enjoy sampling the variety of beers at dinner to celebrate the day’s ride
