The Paterberg's cobbled slopes

London-based Elitecycling is offering the chance to spend two days in the company of Classics legend Johan Museeuw. Participants will meet and have dinner with Johan and will also ride the

Museeuw Classic cyclosportive in his VIP group.

Tour Details

Pick up on Sunday, 11 May 2008, at Ashford mainline train station, which can be easily reached by rail from London. The station is less than 10 minutes from junction 10 off the M20 and is easily accessible by car from the M25. There is a secure car park, which costs £11.50 for 24 hours.

After breakfast the next morning you will board the coach and drive to Bellegem to start the ride in the VIP party alongside Johan and many other dignitaries. Food and drinks will be available throughout the ride at major points.
