Paris Roubaix 2016 1 night spectator trip

9th to 10th April 2016

After a very successful trip to Paris Roubaix in 2015, we are offering a weekend travel package to the Paris Roubaix 2016 professional cycling race.
This one night package features an overnight stay in Senlis near Compiegne. Note that this is a spectator trip without opportunity to ride your bike due to time constraints.

The Paris-Roubaix is one of the oldest cycle races of the professional road cycling calendar. First run in 1896, it was created by two Roubaix textile manufacturers, Théo Vienne and Maurice Perez, who were hoping the race would become a training event for the then more famous Bordeaux-Paris.

They suggested the idea to Paul Rousseau, director of sports newspaper Le Vélo and he was immediately convinced, sending his cycling editor Victor Breyer to research and scout the original route between Paris and Roubaix. The race has been contested every year since 1896, stopped only by the two World wars.
