Why we Love this Tour
- Our Paris-Roubaix is a full day escorted trip starting in Paris that will follow the race right through to the finish at Roubaix velodrome. Along the way, you’ll enjoy a picnic lunch and see the race as it makes it way over several sections of pavé.
- This is a unique opportunity to see up close the difficult conditions that make Paris-Roubaix a unique race and possibly the toughest one day race in the world. At the end of the day after we’ve seen the race winner claim victory in the Roubaix velodrome, we will transfer you to Lille TGV station where you can travel back to Paris having had the experience of a lifetime.

Race day: Paris – Roubaix 2023
Our experienced staff will meet you at 7.45am at the Gare du Nord, Paris. From Paris, it is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes to reach Compiègne where we will see the riders prepare for the race start.
Hell of the North
Raced during Spring, where the weather can be variable, sometime they’re mild days as well as cold days. Either way, dusty cobbles are just as slippery as wet cobbles.
The race starts around 11am from Compiègne. After seeing riders sign-on and head out, we begin our chase.
We drive to our first cobblestone area where we will see the race pass over along and difficult section of pavé (cobblestones), as well as enjoy our picnic lunch.
Through the afternoon we will visit several other sections of pave along the route and we’ll see up close difficult conditions that take their toll on the riders as the day wears on.
In between the different stops, we will provide a picnic lunch with drinks and snacks during the day.
From our final secteur of cobbles we will head to the Roubaix Velodrome to wait the arrival of the winner.
see riders on multiple cobbles sections as well as their arrival into the velodrome
The winning rider will enter Roubaix Velodrome between 4.40pm and 5.25pm depending on the average speed for the day. After the race finishes we will visit the finish area and your day at Paris-Roubaix comes to an end.
We will transfer you to Lille Europe rail station, arriving between 7.00pm and 7.30pm. Lille Europe rail station is a large international rail station with shops and cafés should you wish to eat before your train this evening.
