Paris–Roubaix is a one-day professional bicycle road race in northern France, starting north of Paris and finishing in Roubaix. Famous for rough terrain and cobblestones, it is one of the 'Monuments' or classics of the European calendar, and contributes points towards the UCI World Ranking. It has been called the Hell of the North, a Sunday in Hell (also the title of a film about the 1976 race), the Queen of the Classics or la Pascale: the Easter race.

Since 1977, the winner of Paris–Roubaix has received a sett (cobble stone) as part of his prize. The terrain has led to the development of specialized frames, wheels and tires. Punctures and other mechanical problems are common and often influence the result.

Uprise Bakery's counter is closed on Sundays, and our Hittsville policy is that no outside food or drink is permitted in the theater, even when the bakery is closed. Coffee and water will be provided. Please plan accordingly.
