'HELL OF THE NORTH'
PARIS ROUBAIX DAY TOUR
13 April 2014
Following the sell-out success and great feedback from our 2012 & 2013 programs, we have released our 2014 Tour which will follow the race and conclude in the vélodrome of Roubaix.
In 2014, cycling’s toughest competitors again make their way to the testing grounds of the roads between Paris and Roubaix in the North of France. One of sport’s oldest and most intriguing races takes on not only 250+km of intense racing but also many formidable sections of ‘pavé’.
Our day trip from Paris offers you the unique opportunity to witness this battle first hand in many locations en route before we welcome the champion as they cross the finish line in the velodrome of Roubaix. Our race viewing locations are focused on where the excitement happens – on the cobbles– and where the champion is crowned - in the velodrome.
Your day starts in Paris where you will be collected from Gare du Nord by our private coach before heading north to intercept the stage route. Through the day you will enjoy the spectacle of the ‘caravanne’, view the race at a number of sections of the ‘pavé’ and be witness to the champion’s arrival in Roubaix. En route you will also enjoy a champagne picnic lunch. Our day concludes in Lille which offers high speed TGV connections back to Paris or Eurostar to London in a little over an hour.
Historically we watch the race from the first section of cobbles followed by the Foret d'Arenberg section before the velodrome. The 2014 program will be confirmed on release of the race route and timings.
Cost per person: 285 Euro

Some feedback from our 2012 & 2013 tours:
'Thanks for a great day and evening last sunday! I will recomend you for anyone who wants to experience cycling the way it's suppose to be experienced. Two of us will probably join you for the challange next year and we are already looking forward to that.'
'C'est fantastique! Merci beaucoup for the great time! What a finish! And danke to the Norwegians for the aquavit. Also, the dust from the pave gave my hair incredible texture! :) An added bonus. I hope Sean and I can make this an annual event.'
'Thanks for an amazing experience! We loved everything and you guys are Amazing!!!'
'The day trip itself was really a lot of fun and is a great way to see the race, especially if you are not from there and do not know your way around. Our hosts for the day, Didier and Melissa, were exceptional as well. The entire day was first class. The group provided lunch and even had champagne which made you feel even more first class. This group definitely has connections because everywhere you go you have front row views of the race. It was a very laid back environment which both my husband and I greatly appreciate.
I really can't say enough great things about this experience. We would recommend this group to anyone
(actually have already given out their info to a bunch of friends) and would rejoin them again if we are ever able to make it over to Europe for more racing.'
