Program bis of the route on road cycling, multi stages, on the Roman roads, from Lille to Budapest from July 13 to 31, 2019.

A sporting bike trip across the northern border of the Roman Empire (Limes) across the European continent to end in one of the countries of the former Eastern Bloc, Hungary.

This border, the limes, stretched from the North Sea to the Black Sea and left many traces in history. The Limes is the largest European monument and is ideal for exploring attractive and interesting countries. Although they are traces of a distant past, the Roman ramparts with watchtowers, branches and even cities are tangible in many places.

Below you will find the travel schedule per day.
