Location

The Belgian town of Oudenaarde in the Flemish Ardennes is host to the Tour of Flanders. The town comes alive in spring when Flanders Finest puts the area on the world map of cycling again.

The final 75 kilometres are the toughest part of the race. The riders are circling the area around Oudenaarde and ride cobble climbs like the Koppenberg, Hotond and of course the Oude Kwaremont and the Paterberg. Riders and fans eagerly look forward to the finale in the centre of Oudenaarde. The crowds in Oudenaarde eagerly await the arrival of the riders and watch the race unfold on large TV screens. The Donkmeer and the market square are turned into the epicentre of the cycling world for a couple of days every spring.

The day before the Tour of Flanders, thousands of sportive cyclists ride their own Tour of Flanders during the 'We Ride Flanders' Cyclo. Just like the riders the next day, amateur cyclists tackle the same Flemish ‘Bergs’ and cobbled sections. From about midday, thousands of amateur cyclists from Belgium and beyond cross the finish line in Oudenaarde. The crowds at the finish line can enjoy all that Oudenaarde has to offer.
