Saturday August 4th: pick up at Brussels airport

Today someone of our organization will pick you up at Brussels airport and assist you to our vehicle. We collect you from Brussels airport and bring you to our home base in Kortrijk.

The first job will be to assemble your bike and the Go4Cycling staff will be on hand if you have mechanical problems or need any other assistance. We will then leave for a short ride to discover the area around the place where we stay.

Tonight a Welcome Dinner is provided at the dining room of the hotel. There, the tour leaders will explain the whole itinerary and present the program of the following ten days. We’ll also explain how we ride in group, the pace, the organized evening city trips, et cetera. This is a good occasion to ask any questions you might have but of course also to meet the people who you will be spending your holiday with.

Sunday August 5th : ride to the Tour of Flanders museum 

This morning we’ll go for a ride to the Tour of Flanders museum in Oudenaarde. The Tour of Flanders Centre is located in the historical heart of Oudenaarde and is an interactive museum. A visit consists of ten different themes. At your convenience there will be a museum guide. He will bring back alive all the cycling legends. You might even get a chance to meet one of them!

The interactive museum is all about the spirit and the heroes of the Tour. The museum has a multi-media approach with magnificent audiovisuals, projections and computer simulations. Every visitor gets the chance to experience the Tour himself. You can feel the excitement, the suffering and the happiness. You can cycle next to Schotte, Merckx or Museeuw and you can feel the cobbled stones and hills. 

Monday August 6th : ride your own "Tour of Flanders 

Today is a big day, with a huge challenge! Oude Kwaremont, Paterberg, Koppenberg (steep and cobbled), Steenbeekdries, Taaienberg, Leberg, Berendries, Valkenberg, Eikenmolen, the Wall of Geraardsbergen and Bosberg will all be part of today’s cycling challenge. Take these all at your own pace: at the top the group will wait for the others so we can descent savely. Once you’ve been there you’ll finally be able to really understand Belgium's obsession with bike racing.

Tuesday August 7th : bike ride along the Flemish polders and visit the Menin Gate in Ypres.

Today we explore the polders. Old creek bridges take you to historic settlements. We drive back through the Meetkerke Moere. On the way you will meet a number of medieval waterways as Ieperlee, Ede North and Zydelinge.

The area is a typical open landscape that has remained very cool. It is therefore the most authentic landscapes of West Flanders. Late afternoon we're expected in Ypres. This historical city was completely destroyed during World War 1, but like a phoenix she arose her ashes and became again the beautiful city of today, with a high cultural and gastronomical potential. Exact 08.00 pm each day the Last post is played at the Menin gate, in honour of the fallen heroes, died for their countries during the first World War. Once been a witness of this ceremony, you won't forget this anymore.

Wednesday August 8th : ride to Sluis and visit a local brewery at Bruges

In the morning we take you along for a bike ride to Sluis (charming old port town in Zeelandic Flanders - The Netherlands). Through the flat landscape of the Flemish and Dutch polders we lead our way. In comparison with our adventure of last saturday a calm and easy ride, unless the wind is our contestant today. In the old fishing-village and former garrison we'll take a break. After our quickening lunch we ride to Bruges. In the afternoon, everyone is free to discover Bruges. Bruges, the Venice of the North and the capital of West Flanders, is one of the most famous Belgian cities and by UNESCO in 2002 declared "World HeritageCity ". That same year, the residents of Bruges boasted the heritage, culture, history and art-historical patrimony, celebrating the title 'Cultural Capital of Europe'. Bruges is a rich city in every meaning of the word. Because of the long history there is much to tell about Bruges and its famous inhabitants like Jan Breydel, Pieter De Coninck, Jan van Eyck, Simon Stevin, … It’s thus not surprising that this city has a very high tourism rate. Tourists can discover breathtaking monuments, informative and interesting museums, city tours in horse carriages, boat tours on the famous canals of Bruges and a web of little streets to wander about. You’ll be able to discover the local brewery “Halve maan”. For centuries the Maes family has been brewing beer on the Walplein in Bruges. The history of the brewery is contained in a unique museum.

Thursday August 9th :  ride your own "Hell of the North" - Paris-Roubaix 

Another big day! Today you‘ll be in the famous Arenberg Forest yourself during our own version of "Paris-Roubaix". For us, with no doubt, this is an extraordinary classic. After riding on several cobbled sections you will be begging to stop! You will feel some muscles of which you didn’t even realise their existence! Always feel free to skip a cobbled section and do it in a little bit more convenient way, in the escorting van! The last sections are “well cobbled” and will bring you to the Vélodrome of Roubaix. This moment will kick adrenaline in your body and give you unforgettable memories. This evening, no city excursion, your bed will feel double as comfortable. You’ll need a good night rest.

Friday August 10th : ride to Ghent

A relaxing ride brings us from our hotel to the Ghent. The history of Ghent begins in the year 630 when St. - Amandus chose the site of the confluence (or ‘Ganda’) of the two rivers, the Lys and the Scheldt, to construct an abbey. Nearly 1,400 years of history are still palpable in the city today: a medieval castle surrounded by a moat, an imposing cathedral, a belfry, three beguinages, ... Nowhere else you’ll find that much history per square meter than in the historical heart of Ghent! Ghent has big chain stores next to authentic boutiques, trendy shops next to traditional ones. We invite you to our historical and gastronomical banquet. While proceeding our way through the streets of Ghent we get to know the history of this amazing city, where was the palace of the Count of Flanders, how did people of Ghent live under the reign of Emperor Charles, where dwelled the girls of the street... While exploring so the innercity were visiting some inns and will enjoy our different courses.  

Saturday August 11th : a goodbye from Go4Cycling

The trip ends and we head our different ways. Maybe we’ll see you again on another tour. We will have a bus available to shuttle people to the airport during the day.

BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc & Ultegra Di2

BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc & Ultegra Di2

 

The Teammachine has won them all; the Tour de France (Yell Cadel!), the Olympics (Greg VA!), World Championships (Fast Phil!), and grueling Classics. Despite its success, BMC has not been resting on their laurels: to stand still means being overtaken – to remain at the top, even the best must evolve. The new Teammachine pushes the boundaries of advanced cycling technology. Its creation has been all-encompassing. The result is the pinnacle of performance in competitive cycling: the world’s raciest balance of light weight, stiffness and compliance, perfected with maximal integration and Swiss design; a jet on wheels.

Your bike will be fitted with disk brakes, with the latest 2018 electronic shimano ultegra di2 shifting with a 50/34 front and 11/28 rear cassette giving you the right gear at the speed of light. The 40mm high-profile carbon DT swiss wheelset is mounted with 25mm clincher tires to offer you the lowest rolling resistance.

The SLR01 is available in sizes 54 - 56 - 58.

BMC Roadmachine RM01 Disc & Ultegra Di2

Who said you couldn’t have it all? The Roadmachine challenges the traditional road bike categories.

Brilliant pedaling efficiency and the ideal level of compliance for legendary long days of riding leave you with no doubts; this bike has it all.

Your bike will be fitted with disk brakes, with the latest 2018 electronic shimano ultegra di2 shifting with a 50/34 front and 11/28 rear cassette giving you the right gear at the speed of light. The light carbon 3T wheelset is mounted with 28mm clincher tires for added riding comfort.
