Bastogne is a remembrance tourism destination, but also a vibrant town with a thriving commercial scene, pristine nature, delicious cuisine and arms open to visitors. 
Bastogne is also a haven for sports enthusiasts. There is no shortage of fun, with cycling races and other events that mark the seasons and draw bigger crowds every year. Among other things, in 2023 it is hosting the Beau Vélo de RAVeL, an increasingly popular family-friendly cyclosportive ride. 
As a cycling town, Bastogne also offers countless opportunities for bicycle tours thanks to its extensive network of cycle paths, among the most extensive in Wallonia. 
Among the sporting events that put Bastogne on the map, one stands out: the epic Liège–Bastogne–Liège, the "Old Lady", which has had a women's version for a few years now.
Bastogne feels proud and honoured to host the start of the women's race. We are also thrilled to support the men's peloton and cheer for the riders as they zip through our town.   
Thank you to these elite athletes, both women and men, for keeping us on the edge of our seats time and again! 
Thank you to the crowds for always turning out in force!
Long live Bastogne!
