The Cycle Flanders Fields is centralized around the stunning seaside town of Nieuwpoort and sits just 40 minute from Calais. The 90km course is a unique 1 lap route absorbing everything the historic west of Belgium has to offer. The route covers a part of the World Tour Classic ‘Ghent-Wevelgem’ course. It’s your chance to follow in your hero’s footsteps attempting the famous “cobbled streets” and the celebrated Kemmelberg.

Starting and finishing in the city centre, riders head southwest following the World War 1 front line toward Diksmuide, Ypres and the sobering Menin Gate. The routes are dotted with monuments and cemeteries from both Wars which pay respect to those who lost their lives fighting for freedom. Make the Flanders Fields Bike your “must do” race for 2022. You won’t be disappointed!

    The Nieuwpoort Swim is one of the only open water swimming competitions in Belgium. The start is at the Old Fish Market and you swim towards the entrance of the largest marina in Northern Europe. As the start of the Long Course Weekend you swim against an international field of participants over 3.8km. Despite the sea water you swim in calm water because of the protection against the current of the channel and the spectators can also walk along the entire course. In the shadow of the West Front monument and with the finish on the Long Course Weekend festival grounds, this will undoubtedly be a race to remember.
