Dwars door Vlaanderen Cyclo

The steep hills and tough cobbled sections in the Flemish Ardennes are waiting for you once again. Are you keen to conquer them? Or maybe you are preparing for We Ride Flanders, the Tour of Flanders for cycling enthusiasts? Dwars door Vlaanderen Cyclo gives you the chance to test your legs on Saturday 16 March 2024.

You will start from Waregem for an 75, 120 or 145 kilometer ride through the challenging Flemish countryside. Lap up the beautiful scenery whilst imagining that you are a pro on the cut-throat roads of Dwars door Vlaanderen. In short, the ideal tour for a fun day in the saddle!

Discover the course

Last year, we witnessed two solos at the end of Dwars door Vlaanderen. Both Demi Vollering and Christophe Laporte crossed the line alone in Waregem. Will you try to get rid of your friends on one of the cobbled sectors or do you prefer to beat them at the finish after a hard sprint? Get to know the course here soon!

Recycling action

In Belgium, three million cell phones lie forgotten in a drawer. And yet 90% of the materials in cell phones can be recycled (copper, cobalt, silver, gold, etc.). By 2024, Proximus wants to collect as many as 140,000 cell phones.

A warm call to all cycling fans to put their greenest foot forward and participate in the recycling action! This is possible at all Proximus Cycling Challenges mentioned in the calendar and at 6 rides of the Teamleader CRM Classics Tour. Your recycling participation will be rewarded. How? Find out via the button below.

Health

The organisers advise everyone to avoid any form of strenuous physical activity for which they are not adequately prepared. Make sensible choices about the distance you ride and/or the pace you set for yourself.

Anyone who aims to improve performance and compete at a high intensity should see a (specialised sports) physician annually for a check-up. There is no requirement to produce a medical certificate.

It is up to the participant to decide how to use the information resulting from a medical check-up. The organisers cannot be held liable in this respect.

Photoservice

Sportograf is our official photo partner and will take photos of all participants during Dwars door Vlaanderen Cyclo. You can order these one day after your participation by clicking the button below.

You can find more info on how your photos will be handled here.

Ride with us and support Younited Cycling

Besides being a relaxing activity, cycling is also a powerful tool. Under the flag of ‘My Team, My Home’, Younited Cycling builds cycling teams where everyone is welcome and included.

Their participants fight against vulnerability in housing, mental health, well-being, poverty, migration or addiction.

In their peloton, they find more than just teammates, they find a home. They are coached by social workers who give them a warm welcome and individual attention, to guide them both on and off the bike.

Additional funding is needed to help Younited Cycling grow. Your contribution can also help. When registering online, you have the option to donate 5, 10 or 15 euros for Younited Cycling.
