The Ghent 6 Day 2014
21st to 24th November 2014
Since the demise of our own Six-Day event in 1980, Gent has become the adopted home venue for British Six-Day fans.
The Ghent track is only 168 m round, but this combined with its steep bankings ensures fantastic racing and a superb atmosphere.
Our accommodation for the weekend is conveniently situated and within walking distance of the stadium. The Hotel Ibis is also situated close to many shops, bars, restaurants and the famous bike shop, Plume Vainquer.
This trip is a very popular, end of season finale and places do sell quickly, early booking is advisable.
An accommodation only package is also available.
