What makes cycling awesome reaches a crescendo in Flanders. The roads of Flanders are winding, narrow and brutal and Flandriens ride with grit and determination. The road and gravel bike routes are peppered with cobbled climbs from a time long gone, asking to be conquered in three- and four-minute bouts of intense and concentrated effort.
The region’s races, such as De Ronde or Ghent-Wevelgem weave between farmers’ fields and villages from the middle ages. In Flanders, cycling is not a sport – it is a religion. So don’t be surprised when you hear locals cheering you on, even when you’re a visitor to these sacred roads.
