What's Cool In Road Cycling

Roubaix Preview: The Route

We all know that Paris – Roubaix is “the” Hell of the North – named fittingly for the way everyone feels after riding it (except maybe the winner…). But don’t bother bringing that sheepskin seat cover with you, the comfort simply would not be worth the lifetime of ridicule you’d face from your buddies… would it?

The Stats:
Distance: 261 km
Cobblestones: 26 sections of “pave”, varying in length from 300 meters to 3700 meters, covering a total ass-whoopin’ distance of 49.1km!

Below is a map of the second half of the route, the cobblestones are in green.
