- Six days race in Gent – anyone been, got ticket advice?
As above really. Been following this a bit and thinking about going next year.
A quick search on t’Internet doesn’t seem to offer up much on what the options are for the average punter.
So I thought I’d put it to the hive. Any thoughts, advice (good or bad), experiences, etc very welcome.
Interested in options for getting tickets, best days to attend, accommodation, travel (from Manchester) etc etc
Thanks in advance!Posted 3 months agobiggingeMember
I’ve not been for the race before but if you do go I can wholeheartedly recommend trying some meatballs from balls and glory while you’re there.
Getting the train over from Cambridge (via Kings cross and st. pancras if I recall correctly) was very easy and I’d most likely do the same again if I go back.Posted 3 months agopetefromearthMember
Ghent is a lovely place and well worth a day or two to explore by bike
I went to the 6 day race, think we just bought tickets on the day and it was not expensive. We were standing in the middle of the track, which had a great atmosphere, however not that good if you want to watch the actual race. They are spinning round you so fast it’s impossible to follow what’s going on, especially as the commentary is in Belgian. Most people seemed to be there for the beer and hot dogs.
Check out the famous bike shop Plum while your are there, it’s awesome
There is also a very cool bakery/pizza/cafe called SuperettePosted 3 months ago
