Paris - Roubaix 2020

Sportive & Race viewing

It’s the queen of the classics. Since 1896, Paris-Roubaix has been the most spectacular cycling race in the world. Here it is the length, repetition and irregularity of the cobblestones that make this race so unique. Veymont offers you an introduction to the track in the new Roubaix velodrome, then you experience your Paris-Roubaix with the “sportive” Paris-Roubaix Challenge: Arenberg, le Carrefour de l’Arbre and its mythical velodrome. Finally, on the day of the pro race, it is in the paved sector of the Carrefour de l’Arbre, very often the key point of the race, about 15 km from the finish, that you will view the riders passing on their way to glory. Are you ready to challenge the Hell of the North ?

We welcome you at Lille Europe Train Station at 2 pm and drive you at your hotel in Lille where we’ll stay for four nights, perfectly located to enjoy Paris – Roubaix, the main event of the spring classics season . After a bike fitting and a tour orientation, we explore this splendid city. All the ingredients are in place to make the capital of French Flanders a must. A stroll in Old Lille, a visit to the Palais des Beaux-Arts (one of the most beautiful museums in France), the discovery of alternative places (the Tripostal or the surprising Maison Folie) will delight you. Also enjoy the shops of young creators, the countless offers of the music scene, and all the cafés…. The sense of celebration and hospitality of the people of Lille are not usurped qualities!
