Ludo Peeters, René Dillen and Johny Macharis from behind

On the wheel of a former professional

Could there be anything more exclusive than trying out the cycling routes in the tracks of a genuine former professional? Ludo Peeters, René Dillen, Kurt Onclin and Johny Macharis cycle with groups of 8 people or more on these great adventure tours. Be prepared to hear the funniest, most heroic and sometimes tragic tales and facts of their careers. They will of course tell you about their local cycling heroes and show you the places where cycling history was made. All you have to do is get on your bike and enjoy the ride.

You can also take a tour with Paul Van Bommel. He has met all the great names in the cycling world and put together an impressive collection of cycling memorabilia at his Casa Grinta restaurant.

Every cycling trip with a former professional is adapted to the participants. So contact the Rupel Area-Vaartland Tourist Office to organise a customised programme.

Price: €125 for a cycling tour with former professional cyclist for a whole day.
Option: private guided tour of the Casa Grinta cycling museum with drink, at €8 per person
