Gent-Wevelgem Bike race 2011

Is it possible to get from Ieper or Wevelgem to Kemmelberg by public transport when this bike race is on? I may be able to watch the race next year but would not have my own transport and would like to wathc from the Kemmelberg hill. Or is it possible to hire a bike or cab?

De Lijn bus 70 goes from Ieper to Kemmel (final destination is Nieuwkerke), here is the bus map of W. Flanders: delijn.be/images/Netplan_West-Vlaanderen_201…

I stayed at the Kemmelberg Hotel many years ago, and for sure you could take a taxi there - although of course certain roads may be closed on race day. Also hire a bike in Ieper, e.g. at the railway station.

Sorry, possibly not at the railway station, as this is only between April and September, see b-rail.be/nat/…index.php ; and I'm not sure but I think the race might be in March.
