About the Event

We have teamed up with the Extra Mile Challenge to offer Happy Days supporters the chance to join a fantastic European cycling experience.


The challenge changes year on year, with this year’s Flanders Challenge taking place over five days in September, with three days of cycling. The route covers the scenic roads between Metz in France and Ypres in Belgium, and the relay set-up is designed to allow even moderate cyclists the opportunity to get involved.


Enter as a team of 4 cyclists (taking turns to ride and drive the support vehicle) or as a team of 4 cyclists plus a dedicated support driver for a nominal extra cost. For more information visit www.extra-mile.org.uk or call Rob Cox on 01462 530710

The Route

Day 1 will be a loop out and back to Metz incorporating some of the most picturesque roads of the Moselle, the vineyards and forests around Trier in Germany and Luxembourg.


Day 2 we head north west following broadly the French/Belgian border to the city of Valenciennes.  Our route will include the large regional wildlife parks of the Ardennes and L’Avesnois. 


Day 3 will take us north of Valenciennes into the West Flanders region of Belgium to finish in the magnificent historical city of Ypres.  We will tour famous areas and WW1 sites around the Salient. 


We should all attend the 8pm “Last Post” ceremony at the Menin Gate before dinner in the stunning historic city centre.
