Flanders Fields Gravel Tour, you don't want to miss this!
Biking Events (since 1999 organiser of the LCMT "mountain bike" in Ardennes) launches a brand new cycling event: the 1st Flanders Fields Graveltour.
Also a three-day tour but now from the home base where Biking Box (Cycling Experience Centre) is located: YPRES! With this, we are focussing on the many cycling options Flanders Fields & le Nord has to offer.
In close cooperation with the Royal Ypres Cycling Club and the City of Ypres, we officially present this new top weekend in terms of cycling experience in Ypres and surroundings.
The Flanders Fields Gravel Tour will incorporate the tried and tested success ingredients of the LCMT. An excellent all-in package, coupled with many accommodation options.
You can ride the Flanders Fields Gravel Tour by gravel bike, mountain bike or cyclocross bike.
The three-day Gravel Tour is also included in the cycling calendar of Wielerbond Vlaanderen (cyclists and riders with a permit do not have to pay any additional insurance).

Competition or fun? Souvenir for everyone.
We provide daily 1 or 2 'chrono-zones' where the more competitive riders amongst us may prove themselves. Although not an official competition race, it will probably be highly appreciated by some of you. If you are not interested in the time trials, just do not registrate, when you get the offer. All still behave courtiously to other people that you may cross or pass on the road.
Everyone will receive a unique souvenir & nice goodie bag at the start.
Bike-cleaning is of course available daily: at the sports center in King Leopold III-laan, where also showers and dressing rooms are situated.
