Cycle Touring has ……”A philosophy of Art and Good Living”.
Touring is a sport and relaxing activity. It
is considered more as a hobby. which allows you to sightsee, meet people, to help
each other, and also to make friends, and is not competitive.
It is a way to travel while cycling, alone, with the family or with a group,
anywhere, at any age, in accordance with your own physical condition and at any
time. It serves to accomplish journeys from shorter to longer distances, in
several stages, with prepared itineraries or independently and freely, in your
own time, in the country or foreign countries.

Mons-Chimay-Mons, it's the first "Event of the Year" for the touring cycle addict. The courses range from 20 to 200 km. For the hardiest, the BCCB of 200 km takes you from Mons through Couvin and deepest Hainaut experiencing France on the way. It's as far as Chimay that the height enthusiasts come to; for the gain of height experience (there's no gain without pain!!) at the 150 km point. All of the other distances are equally attractive: 75 & 100 km in the valley of Thune, a 50 km assault on the Col del Saul and a gentle 20 or 40 km routes in the countryside. We all speak English (even very badly), and would welcome you with open arms.
