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.
