In 1984 the Rotary Club of Herentals in Belgium as a fund raising activity organised the first Rotarian Cycling World Championships.
The club organised the races again in 1985 and 1986 but then decided that the effort was too much for a single club.
Some Belgian an Dutch participants to the races got together in 1988 and decided to establish a Rotary Fellowship.
The International Fellowship Cycling to Serve was ratified in that year by Evanston.The races were now organised by the club Torhout-Houtland also in Belgium.
Since then the races were organised annually by clubs in various countries:
• Belgium
• Germany
• Switzerland
• France
• England
• Italy
• The Netherlands

Entrance fees to the races are distributed as price money to the winners to be donated to the Community Service of their clubs.

Touring activities

Touring activities crystallised into a 4-day event over the Ascension day weekend which was held for the first time in 1991 organised by The Rotary club of Thionville in France.
This has also become an annual event which has taken place in many countries.

Cycling is more relaxed, partners may participate and friendly ties have been formed over the years between the participants.
