Paris Roubaix 2014 1 night trip

12th to 14th April 2014

Travel packages to the 2014 Paris Roubaix pro race are now ON SALE. Our trip in 2013 sold out in record time.

After a very successful trip to Paris - Roubaix in 2013, we are offering a weekend travel package to the Paris - Roubaix 2014 professional cycling race. This one night package features an overnight stay in Senlis near Compiegne.

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.
