Where do you go for a Bank Holiday weekend? Bournemouth? Sure, a nice beach; just not the right season yet. Brighton? A good ride, and delicious smoked fish, but this weekend happens to be at the height of the Classics Season. And as such, we can have only one answer – Roubaix, France.
Fresh from riding wounds on last year’s sportive, The London Baroudeurs return once more to Roubaix, but this time to cheer our heroes on. The atmosphere is electric; the fans, friendly; and action packed drama throughout, this can easily become a regular family pilgrimage.
Love the cobbles. Love the riders. Loving the family!
