Coach Trip to the World CX Championships

World Cyclo-Cross Championships Heusden-Zolder, Belgium 2016

30th & 31st January 2016

A coach trip has been arranged to travel to the above event.

Cyclo-Cross World Championships website:


2016 sees the introduction of a new category, bringing the total number of world-class races over the weekend to five.

And that’s not to mention the atmosphere created by fanatical Belgian and Dutch fans, plus good-natured contingents of fans from the other represented nations. Integrating beer tents, frites, smiles and the best of Euro-pop with top level cycle sport, it’s an experience to remember.

The coach departs from Swindon early morning on Friday 29th January and will travel via the Channel Tunnel (to save time and avoid any delays due to bad weather). The coach is air-conditioned with an on-board toilet and DVD player. Pick-up points en route to Ashford will be possible.

Three nights on a bed and breakfast basis at the Hotel Novotel Leuven Centrum in mainly twin bedded rooms. Some double rooms are available.


Returning Monday 1st February, arriving in Swindon early evening.

Total cost £230 per person (see below) includes:

• Coach travel to Leuven;

• Three nights bed & breakfast;

• Coach travel from the hotel to Heusden-Zolder and back on Saturday and Sunday;

• Return coach travel to Swindon.

£230 is the price based on 30 people. If 40 people go on the trip, the price reduces to £204. I will advise the total price by the end of November. If the price falls after final balances have been paid, I will refund the difference.

Single rooms are available at an additional supplement of £61.

Children are very welcome to come along and enjoy the trip. Any persons under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.

The trip is restricted to 40 places – bookings will be taken only as deposits are received.

I already have some deposits and expect the coach to be fully booked. I will hold a waiting list if over-subscribed.

Please note:

– ASAP (mid-October at the very latest) – pay £50 deposit

– 30th November – pay balance

If you would like to book a place, please email me at and I’ll send you a booking form by return.
