Intro

Saturday 2nd April will be a festival of cycling to look forward to again!

One day before the pros, you can ride your Ronde with the same iconic slopes and the same legendary cobblestone lanes.

You will struggle on those nasty climbs and cobblestones, enjoy the picturesque and winding roads through the Flemish countryside and be swept up by the inimitable ambiance during "We Ride Flanders".

You can choose from 72, 136, 177 or 217 km. Traditionally, the longest distance sets off from Antwerp, the other three rides from Oudenaarde.

* WRF Fiandre Pro Jacket

It was on the Flemish walls that this garment was tested and retested by highly experienced cyclists and by the pros themselves. In this new version, Fiandre Light retains its front protection and resistance to light rain. The bottom in the back is longer for more rain coverage and a more comfortable fit. The construction of the collar has also been improved with greater attention to the shape. NoRain technology allows sweat to escape without allowing rain in. If it’s perfect for Flanders, this garment has no limits.
