‘The Retro Ronde van Vlaanderen’ is a nostalgic and colourful cycling event during which riders from all over Europe wear retro clothing and ride classic bicycles.

The Retro Ronde is not a competition, it’s a leisurely Sunday ride. You can choose to follow a route of 40, 75, 100 or 160 km through the rolling landscape of the Flemish Ardennes and up and down those well known cobblestoned hills that make the Tour of Flanders race so famous. The bicycles you ride should be from before 1987 (or be vintage styled) and so should the clothing you wear. During your ride, you can stop in some of the scenic locations along the road, and refuel with local food and drinks at our refreshment stations along the way. On Saturday, you can get your backnumber, and a host of activities will take place. There’ll be a bicycle jumble full of retro articles, a group ride to the Koppenberg & Paterberg and the Retro Sprint. You'll definitely have plenty of opportunities to warm up those legs for the upcoming day!

Grab your old bicycle, come on over to Oudenaarde and have a ride with us!
