#TEAM STRONGHER at THE RIDE ARDENNES: We’re going!

What is it?
Three magnificent stages from the hilly heart of the Belgian Wallonia: La Roche-en-Ardenne. This is a ride, not a race, but you still get your stage times and your daily challenges. Riding your own speed or joining a peloton with Strongher friends, you will cross scenic roads in Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany.

The accommodation format is also fun: we will stay in luxury tents (special offer for #TEAMSTRONGHER) in a beautiful camping site, with provided services and amenities you need on and off the bike (food, massage, mechanical support, bike wash, etc). The plan is to live like a pro for three days and enjoy the good cycling life.

In the three stages you will cycle 375 kilometres with an altitude gain of 6.500 meters (it is possible to do shorter distances). With the event support, you can fully concentrate on cycling, making friends, enjoying beautiful sceneries and challenging yourself on the climbs. The rest is covered for you: three meals a day by chef Janneke Pieterson (Giant-Alpecin), fully serviced rest stops per stage, motor and car support, first aid service, ambulance, massages, medical care, GPS route… the lot.

The three stages
Long distance or “Plan B” (short cut)

The Ride Ardennes has three stages starting at the resort Floreal in La Roche-en-Ardenne. Friday morning is time to check in and after lunch we will start the ‘warm-up stage’. 70 Kilometres with the toughest climb in Belgium at the end: the Haussire.

Saturday we start at 8AM for the Queen stage, 185 kilometres with classic hills as Côte de Samree and Côte de Wanne. This day you are crossing three countries: Belgium, Luxemburg and Germany.

The last day you will do the ‘after burner’: 115 kilometres looping to the South. Highlight of the day is the long Route de la Barrière. The day ends with a pasta party and we can all look back on a great cycling adventure.

If you find the distances on stage 2 and 3 a bit too challenging there are alternatives. We want everybody to be able to take part, so there are Plan B routes available. Saturday stage will be 115 kilometres in the shorter edition and Sunday you will only have to cycle 70 kilometres.

All routes will be cycled with GPS files provided by organisation. The routes are not signed. A week before the event you will get an e-mail with all final routes to put on your cycling computer. A gps expert is on site to help you out when you might bump into issues.
