Our Allies launch marks 100 years to the day since the armistice was signed to end World War I.

A Merckxian post Ypres roll through Flanders covering many roads of the famed Tour de Flanders - again the scenery is spectacular!
WWI history in depth. The Fields of Flanders and Ypres. Listen to the eerie Last Post which has been played at the Menin gate every evening since WWI finished.
Belgian Ardennes with rolling hills, cliff perched towns, epic monastic breweries and hard to beat roads.
Did anyone say beer? Or waffles? Or chocolate? Belgium does these staples like no other country in the world and we test them! At Leffe and Achouffe breweries and in the ‘Capital of Chocolate’ - Flanders.
Breathtaking riding through Belgium who has beautiful villages like no other - Rochefort, La Roche en Ardennes and Celles just to name a few.
Cycling history as we rest in Bastogne, the turning point for the epic Ardennes Spring Classic the Liege-Bastogne-Liege.
We return to WWII history as we follow General Patton’s advance from the Battle of Bulge to the Rhine. We ride to Remagen made famous by WWII as the only bridge left standing when the Allies arrived.
Our route is a little different to the tanks - we ride through the steep vine clad hillsides, picturesque wine villages and craggy castles that line the Moselle River Valley - a cyclists' paradise.
Moselle Reisling! Wine tasting at Bernkastel-Kues and of course a glass at our Castle hotel overlooking life go by on the Moselle.
