Travel Tips for Roubaix

Le Velodrome

by filipdebont

In the Parc des Sports you find Le Velodrome. In this Velodrome is the finish line of the famous bicycle race Paris - Roubaix.

Big names have raised their hands at this finish line, and like this they became almost unforgettable in the history of cycling.

The trip Monts et Moulins (Hills and Mills), organised by the local cycling club le V.C. de Roubaix, also finishes here. Like this we also had the opportunity to make a tour at this Velodrome.

A really special experience . . . a kind of chicken meat feeling, as I can remember the moment I entered the Velodrome, all those images flashed through my head of those big champions who also entered the Velodrome at the same spot after ride through the Hell of the North. The special feeling of entering the Velodrome.

Pierre de Roubaix

by filipdebont

It is kind of a tradition in Flanders and Northern France (which was long time part of Flanders), that every city, town has its own giant(s), and then in the annual festivities these giants take part of the parade.

And this goes further then only the parades, as sometimes these giants get married with the giant of another town, och yes and sometimes they even get children, like this new giants get born . . . .

So the giant of the city of Roubaix is Pierre de Roubaix.

Pierre the Roubaix was a very important person in the history of this city.

Thanks to his father Jean III (Jean sans peur - jean without fear) Roubaix received the title of City. Then his son, Pierre the Roubaix continued the work of his father, an around 1469 he received the authorisation of Charles the Bold to start producing wool. This was the start of economic success story for the city of Roubaix.

5 Senses : Feeling

by filipdebont

There is something more to discover in the former swimming pool in Roubaix then just sculptures and pieces of art.

Here they are doing things with the five senses : Feeling - Seeing - Smelling - Tasting.

For the Feeling - Sense they have placed wooden boxes with drawers in the museum. So you have to open a drawer and put your hand inside a black bag, and feel what is inside without looking of course.

Don't be afraid this is not a horror museum, so there are no weird or creepy things inside these bags.

No inside these bags you can feel different kinds of textile, from just the common till the extra ordinary.

This art project is named : The 5 senses around - tactile drawers - Creation of Christian Astuguevieille

Sculptures

by filipdebont

In the museum of Art and Industry in Roubaix, you can see a great collection of sculptures.

Most of these sculptures are placed along the former swimming pool, and via the wooden walkways you can easily admire these sculptures.

From left to right (at the picture):

Le Bucheron de la foret de la Londe (1899) de Paul Richer (Lumberjack of the La Londe woods)

Statue of Haendel (1874) made by Jean-Jules Salmson

Back of the statue L'athlete (1938) (the athlete) made by Felix Joffre.

Textile in La Piscine

by filipdebont

In the former Art-Deco swimming pool, now used as Museum of Art and Industry La Piscine in Roubaix you can also see a textile collection.

That is of course the link to the history of Roubaix as one of the most important textile cities in the North.

You can see different textiles, different in production method, colour, fashion and pattern.
