The Challenge

There are three increasingly difficult routes on offer, on roads which are open to traffic but secured by numerous volunteers and motorcyclists. There is a legendary race for everyone, covering distances from 70km to 172km. The 70km and 145km routes start and finishes in Roubaix, the 172km route starts in Busigny and finishes in Roubaix.

What’s Included

  • Entry into the Paris Roubaix Challenge
  • An afternoon guided social ride on Friday 6th April.
  • Two nights bed and breakfast at Ibis Styles Lille Marcq en Baroeul Hotel with flat screen TV's, satellite channels, free wifi, free parking, only few miles from Roubaix velodrome.
  • A guided social ride to watch the pros race on Sunday 8th April


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.

The Slepe Morning Sportive’s food stop was excellent, the starting guy was very informative with rules and route information, and the ride was very well signposted – there was no risk of getting lost. The route was good: we didn’t have a lot of car traffic to contend with, which is my preferred way of cycling! I really enjoyed it overall, well done to all the organisers!


Wow what a great day the signage on the route was spot On! Lovely weather too! Thanks Simon!!!!


Really enjoyed the Slepe Morning Sportive. Food was particularly good. Thanks for the excellent organisation.
