Liège–Bastogne–Liège 2017 - April
This tour is now sold out and we will be launching our 2018 ride very soon.
Liège Bastogne Liège - known as La Doyenne ('The Old Lady') is one of the five monuments of cycle racing.
Organised over five days our trip offers the opportunity not only to ride the LBL sportive and watch the race up close but we also spend a day in Flanders and an evening in Bruges.
This is a fantastic tour riding some of the most iconic roads and hills from the Belgian spring classics.
We only take a limited number of riders so you aren't herded around from place to place. We are the UK's number one operator of Belgian cycling tours. We pride ourselves on the care and attention our riders receive.
We will transport you to Belgium in our minibus via the Eurotunnel and there is no need to bag/box your bike as we take care of all logistics.
All dates are subject to confirmation from race organisers.
THURSDAY 20th April: Collection from pre-arranged points in the U.K and then we will travel to Belgium. There will be a relaxing evening meal at Amadeus which does all you can eat ribs and jacket spuds!
We stay in Nokere which is just outside Oudenaarde. The accommodation has been designed specifically for cyclists with modern bedrooms, a large social area, bike room and is even located on a cobbled berg!
FRIDAY 21st: We have a very gentle guided ride taking in some of the most famous Flanders bergs and cobbles with lunch and tour at the CRVV-Tour of Flanders museum. Although last year we avoided the bergs and did a ride with 0 metres of climbing! This ride is all about checking bikes and socialising before the main event.
We will then make the short transfer to Liege via quick stops at our favourite Beer Warehouse, the BMC service course and a chocolate/cake shop for those who want to bring back some souvenirs.
In Liege we will collect the rider packs for the sportive and have a very relaxing evening at our four star luxury hotel.
SATURDAY 22nd: Liege-Bastogne-Liege Sportive. There's a choice of routes including the epic 271km
We are located a very short ride from the Sportive HQ.
We have a meal arranged at our Hotel so you don't have to walk anywhere after a long day in the saddle!
SUNDAY 23rd: Race day. You can do your own thing or join our guided tour which heads out to watch the race in several places to cheer on Philippe Gilbert. Cheering for Phil is compulsory. We love Phil.
After the race we transfer to Bruges where we stay in another four star hotel. The transfer to Bruges helps cut down the return journey to the U.K. It also offers a great opportunity to visit a fantastic city where we know all the best bars and restaurants.
MONDAY 24th: We will head home with tall tales of epic riding, new friendships will have been made and of course plans for the next visit will be discussed………
