| The Tour of Flanders for cyclists
and mountainbikers is the second trial on the Golden Bike calendar, an initiative
of the “Union Cycliste Internationale” (UCI) (International
Cyclist Union) to promote bike races worldwide.
The Tour of Flanders is without a doubt one of the biggest sporting events
in Belgium. On the day before, all biking lovers will have the chance
to get a sneak preview of the atmosphere at this biking event. The ultimate
challenge is to cover the 256 kilometers that the professionals will have
completed one day later. But you can also get to know the 140- and 75-kilometer
loops together with some pretty tough hills.
With a few big hills from the real “Tour”, the Tour de Flanders
is a real experience for fervent mountain bikers ! The 25-, 50- or 75-kilometer
loops are mapped out by the specialists of the East Flanders biking department
and are totally in line with the expectations of real mountain bikers.
