Just after the ride on Sunday, a free portrait photo will be taken. You can download the photos for free from our site a few days later.
All distances leave together at 10:30 am. After stopping at Oudenaarde's historic Market Square for a group photo, , the group splits.
During the ride you will be accompanied by motors and retro cars that liven things up a bit.
There are two refreshment points on the 40km and four on the 80 and 120km. At these posts we also provide some technical assistance. On supply 3 and at the finish the Red Cross is present.
There are two broom trucks that can pick you up if needed.
The emergency number is 0479/800409 for both mechanical breakdowns and medical interventions.
Those who started for the 120km can decide along the way to choose a shorter route. Those who started for the 80km or 40km can no longer shorten their route.
At the arrival you will receive a filled musette. There will also be a number of prizes (see below) awarded among the participants around 17h00. Showers can be used free of charge in the Ronde van Vlaanderen center. There will also be a changing room.
Check your equipment in advance
We recommend that you first thoroughly check your equipment (pedals, brake pads, gears, tubes... ) before coming to Oudenaarde. The old(er) material is often more susceptible to defects. It would be a pity if you had to interrupt this beautiful bike ride.
How to get there.
Oudenaarde offers ample parking in the area. There will be a parking lot in the street Tussenmuren. But it can fill up quickly, it is best to park at the back of the Centrum Ronde van Vlaanderen (parking Ham) near the Scheldt river. There are fixed signposts 'P-Ham' from the exit of the N60 or you type 'Smallendam - Oudenaarde' into your GPS and you immediately arrive at the parking.
