VIP Trips to the Classics

Experience the 2017 Classics with Cycle Cols & Classics

With fewer than 100 days to go until the 2017 Cobbled Classics get underway, it is with great pleasure that we are announcing our new travel partnership with Cycle Cols and Classics, a company that shares our passion for the one-day Classics.

Cycle Cols and Classics offer VIP Tours to the Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, the Ardennes Classics and the Tour of Lombardy, as well as other iconic events on the professional cycling calendar.

Particularly remarkable are their contacts with the pro-peloton, regularly sharing hotels with professional teams competing in the Classics. This offers a truly unique insight into the daily life of a professional cycling team, at the very highest level of the sport.

Cycle Cols and Classics is the brainchild of Classics connoisseur Paul Shaftoe, who has accumulated over twenty years’ experience of leading trips to watch the Classics. This has engendered a deep local knowledge of the routes of these famous races, together with an instinct for where the race-winning moves are likely to take place. While some travel companies will take you to the start and finish of these races (and perhaps one location out on the course), Cycle Cols and Classics will take you to multiple locations so that you can watch the action unfold as it happens, and be present at some of the key moments of the race, where the outcome may be decided.

The travel packages for the Classics are priced extremely competitively, given the content and quality of what is on offer, and we are delighted to be associated with a group of individuals who are as knowledgeable and obsessive about these great races as we are!
