RetroRonde van Vlaanderen
Historical bicycle event
‘The RetroRonde van Vlaanderen’ is a nostalgic and colourful cycling event during which riders from all over Europe wear retro clothing and ride classic bicycles.
The RetroRonde is not a competition, it’s a leisurely Sunday ride. You can choose to follow a route of 40, 75 or 100km through the rolling landscape of the Flemish Ardennes and up and down those well known cobblestoned slopes which make the Tour of Flanders race so famous. The bicycles you ride should date from before 1987 (or vintage styled) and so should the clothing you wear. You can stop in some of the scenic locations along the road, and refuel with local food and drink.
The day before, on Saturday registrations are open, there’s a bicycle swap meet, a ride to the Koppenberg & Paterberg and the Retro Sprint as well as a swinging' Retro Soirée. So you'll have plenty of opportunities to warm up those legs for the next day!
Grab your old bicycle, come on over to Oudenaarde and have a ride with us!
The new date for the 11the edition will be anounced as soon as we know it. Follow us on facebook!
