A SPORTING CHALLENGE AND A HUMAN ADVENTURE

This a tough cycling challenge that dates back to 1896.

Paris-Roubaix Challenge offers amateur cyclists the possibility of getting as close as possible to a legendary professional race. 24 hours before the professionals, amateurs from around the world will have the opportunity to measure themselves against the legend of the Hell of the North with its mythical cobbled sections.

You’ll have to tackle the most legendary cobbled sections in the world on your own. But the real spirit of the Paris-Roubaix Challenge is to take up the challenge with friends and to cross the finish line at the velodrome in Roubaix together. The shared experience can continue the next day as you cheer on the best cyclists in the world, fighting it out to ensure their name goes down among the winners of Paris-Roubaix.

I would just like to say a massive thank you and congratulations to Simon of Long Leg Tours and his team for putting on a very well-organised sportive. Everyone was very helpful and the food and water stations did not disappoint. Roll on next year and many more to come.

The Slepe Morning Sportive ticked all the boxes: well organised, friendly, lovely route, good directional signs, the best food stop ever, plus a goody bag! Brilliant, can’t wait for the next one!
