This summer, we are visiting no fewer than 16 locations to get everyone in the mood for the 2021 UCI Road World Championships in Flanders.

 

During our Flanders 2021 Roadshow, not only will you join us in looking back on the most memorable legends the cycling roads have ever known in the KOERSbus, we will also be looking forward!

Parasports players and the little ones are also included in an interactive manner, naturally in World Championships style! One thing is certain: the Flanders 2021 Roadshow is for everyone: young and old, cycle racing fans, active cyclists or anyone curious about what the World Championships have to offer.

KOERSbus

The KOERSbus, a project by KOERS. Museum of Cycle Racing (Roeselare), is a bus that has been converted into a museum on wheels where you can look back on 100 years of road cycling world champions. This dive into cycle racing history fits perfectly in the run-up to the 2021 UCI Road World Championships in Flanders, because we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the World Championships in September. So it’s the ideal time to revisit historical cycle racing moments by means of some unique collection pieces and stories.

They are guided on a challenging bike route by experienced initiators and volunteers with the aim of improving their technical cycling skills.
