Paris-Roubaix Challenge Sportive and Race Weekend 2018 - April
Paris Roubaix - The Hell of the North. We could build this up with an 'epic' description but if you are looking at this trip then you should already appreciate the legendary status of this race. If you haven't heard of Paris Roubaix then this ride isn't for you.......
This weekend is the perfect opportunity to ride the pave on the Paris-Roubaix Challenge Sportive and then watch the pros up close the next day. We recommend the 140km route as the 163km involves a transfer to the start which we do not provide.
At Polocini we are Roubaix veterans and LOVE the pave! You can join us on our group ride as we take on the 140km route or head off at your own pace. We usually have a nice peloton of riders and we re-group at the end of each pave sector. The Strava details can be found HERE.
We are also staying very close to the Roubaix Velodrome so there are no unnecessary transfers. Our trips are planned to ensure maximum ride enjoyment and with a limited number of riders you aren't herded around from place to place.
Included in the cost of the trip is return transport to Roubaix from the UK. We travel via the Eurotunnel and there is no need to bag/box your bike as we have plenty of space in our minibus.
All dates are subject to confirmation from race organisers.
FRIDAY 6th April 2018: Collection from pre-arranged points in the U.K and then we will travel to Roubaix. There will be a relaxing evening meal and a nice early night.
