The Tour of Flanders has been raced for over 100 years and is the most important cylcing race in Belgium and also known under the name 'Vlaanderens Mooiste'. The Tour of Flanders is one of the 5 big monuments in the cycling sport: Milaan-San Remo, Paris-Roubaix, Tour of Lombardy and Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
Why is the Tour of Flanders such a beautiful and well known race? Easy, because of the landscape! The biggest part of the race takes place in the hilly Flemish Ardennes with several mountains that the cyclists need to climb.
Cycle the tour at your own pace. The signposted cycle routes were renewed in 2013. Follow the three Ronde routes or choose from over 30 sections ranging from 20 to over 100 km.
