Flanders is a region with a rich cycling culture, where famous cobbled classics such as the Tour of Flanders, Dwars door Vlaanderen and Gent-Wevelgem are held every year. The rich history has produced a world-famous cycling archetype: the Flandrien.
Nils and Jochen see it as their task to show the cycling community that Flanders is more than its famous cobblestones. With the spirit of the Flandrien in the back of their minds, they designed a long, sometimes tough but above all beautiful route right through their beloved Flanders. This adventurously winding route reveals a lust for exploration, off-road riding and knowledge of the natural beauty that Flanders has to offer.
'We wanted to show people how endless cycling pleasure can be found in Flemish nature. Flanders Divide shows how surprisingly diverse and beautiful Flanders really is.'
