Paris Roubaix 2017 1 night spectator trip
8th to 9th April 2017
After a very successful trip to Paris Roubaix in 2016, we again offer a weekend travel package to the Paris Roubaix 2017 professional cycling race. This one night coach package from the UK 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.
What an exciting event the 2016 Paris Roubaix was!!. Fast and furious, incredible speed and an unexpected but deserved winner in Austrailian Matt Hayman of Orica Green Edge.
This time efficient tour to the 2017 Paris-Roubaix features an overnight stay with breakfast and evening meal in Senlis, near the start in Compiegne. “The queen of classics” is a formidable and exciting race, considered by many to be the best one day classic cycling race to watch.
You will see the start of the ‘Hell of the North’ in Compiegne followed by a viewing point en-route plus the finish in the Roubaix Velodrome.
Packed lunch provided so there is not time wasted.
