Flanders Watch Party & Ride

As the days grow longer and the temperatures start to warm up, we know that spring is just around the corner. And with spring comes the beginning of the cycling season, with the Tour of Flanders being one of the most anticipated races of the year.

Here at VeloConcepts, we’re excited to announce our Tour of Flanders Watch Party & Ride on Sunday, April 2nd. This iconic race is the first of cycling’s monuments and takes place in beautiful Belgium, where cycling is more than just a sport – it’s a way of life.

Things will kick off at noon with a fun and challenging no-drop ride, where we’ll explore the beautiful bergs of Culpeper. This ride is suitable for all skill levels, so whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out, you’re sure to have a great time. After the ride, we’ll head back to the shop to watch a replay of the 2023 Tour of Flanders.

But it’s not just about the cycling – we’ll also be serving up some delicious Belgian-inspired food and beverages to keep you fueled and hydrated throughout the day. Belgium is known for its waffles, chocolate, and beer, so you can expect to see some tasty treats on the menu. Of course, if you’re not a fan of Belgian cuisine, we’ll also have a selection of American favorites available.

The Tour of Flanders is one of the most important races on the cycling calendar, and it’s part of the UCI World Tour, which means that only the very best cyclists in the world will be competing. The course itself is challenging, with steep climbs and cobbled roads, making it a true test of endurance and skill. The race has a long and storied history, dating back to 1913, and it’s become an iconic event in the cycling world.

So, whether you’re a die-hard cycling fan or just looking for a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon, we hope you’ll join us for our Tour of Flanders Watch Party & Ride. It’s going to be a fantastic day of cycling, food, and fun, and we can’t wait to see you there!
