It will be encouraged to participate as a 5 riders team, although individual participation is also possible. Teams of enterprises can order their own outfit, created by KALAS. Just get in touch with us and we make sure you can ride the Great War Memorial in a customized TEAM-outfit, including the official GWMT-logo on your shirt and bike-short. You may even suggest personal sponsors to print on your bicycle outfit for this 1st Great War Memorial Tour.

Only 1 rule: no 'war-imitation' uniforms, because although there is a direct link with the Remembrance of the Great War, we will not encourage any re-enactment. Riding the bicycle and chasing pure sporting challenges with a clear PEACE statement that is suitable for our cycling tour.

Organisation by Biking Events group

Since 1999 organizing the Luxemburg Cycling & Mountainbike Tour (www.lcmt.be) and other events, such as Houffamarathon (till 2012), Freddy Maertens Classic (till 2007) and other events for cyclists, BIKING EVENTS has a very good reputation in Belgium to organize complete more-days cycling events. Having their company seat in Ieper ('Ypres' or the heart of 'In Flanders Fields') it was a matter of time to develop this new cycling event. With the Great War Memorial Tour, for the first time the focus is mainly on the Western Front, starting in Flanders but also covering the Artois and Somme-area. Biking Events was created by former cycling journalist Kurt Titeca and his wife, Renate Drappier.
