Alfred De Bruyne (21 October 1930 – 4 February 1994) was a Belgian champion cyclist.

He won Milan – San Remo and Liège–Bastogne–Liège in 1956, the Tour of Flanders, Paris–Roubaix and Paris–Tours in 1957, and again Liège–Bastogne–Liège in 1958 and 1959.

He also won the Challenge Desgrange-Colombo competition 3 years running (1956 to 1958). This was the fore-runner of the Super Prestige now in itself replaced by the UCI Ranking Points List.

He went on to become a team manager, then a spokesman for the TI-Raleigh team, and finally TV sports commentator after his professional cycling career.
