Entries are now open for the Tour of Flanders Sportive on Saturday 30th March 2013.
This is a fantastic event run on the same roads (and cobbles) that the pro’s tackle on the Sunday. If you’ve never been before, make a weekend of it, it’s basically a national holiday in Belgium and the atmosphere around the event is like nothing else (especially if Boonen wins again).
There are 80km and 140km route options as well as the full 240km monster starting in Brussels and finishing in Oudenaarde. Mountain bike routes are also available (maybe a good idea with the pave in mind!).
Get in quick – only 16,000 places available 😉 Though I jest, it will probably fill up to that number.
