Start / Finish


You can start at any point within the time slot corresponding to the distance for which you signed up. Race number checks will be carried out at the entrance to the start area and along the course.

There will be two different starting sites depending on the distance.

  • The "Hell of the North" (170 km) ride will start from Rue Pasteur in Busigny (Nord department) between 7 and 7:45 am. To get to Busigny, you can take a shuttle from Roubaix (departing from the Auchan Leers car park at 4:30 am on Saturday, 6 April). To use this service, you need to book it on time to.
  • The "Legend" (145 km) ride will start from the Parc des Sports de Roubaix (Nord department) between 7 and 9 am, followed by the "Discovery" (70 km) ride, which will get under way from the same place between 9 and 11 am.

Note:  We advise you to start as early as possible within your assigned time slot to boost your odds of reaching the velodrome before the time limit (i.e. before 4:30 pm).


Left-luggage facilities are available at the start of all the rides. For the 170k route, you can leave your luggage near the starting line in Busigny. For the 70k and 145k routes, you will leave your luggage at the village, Parc des Sports in Roubaix. Your race number will be written on a label supplied with the number, and attached to your bag. At the finish, you can pick up your bag by presenting your race number at the village, Parc des Sports in Roubaix.


The three rides end in half a lap around the fabled Roubaix Velodrome. For logistical reasons, due to the scheduled finish of Paris–Roubaix Femmes at the Velodrome at 5:20 pm, finishing at the Velodrome will be possible until 4:30 pm. After that time, the velodrome will no longer be accessible and members of the organisation (marshals, motorbike riders…) will guide you towards a different return course to take you to the Parc des Sports de Roubaix without getting caught by the Elite Women's race.

⚠️ For safety reasons, access to the Vélodrome track will be from the left
