Bruges & Flanders Fields Tour
This scenic tour explores the north-west part of Belgium known as Flanders. The pleasing Flemish countryside is painted with soft green hills, winding roads, rustic farms, peaceful canals and bustling villages. The gently rolling hills make for relatively easy cycling from one town to the next and there is plenty of time for sightseeing, especially in the Flemish capital of Bruges where you’ll lodge comfortably for three nights. The pedaling commences in Roeselare easily reached by train from the Brussels Airport. You’ll visit medieval Ypres well known for its WW1 battles and the Tyne Cot Cemetery and world famous Menin Gate. You’ll have time for some beer tasting in the St.-Sixtus Abbey before cycling along the borders of the River Yzer to Diksmuide with its historic plaza. Next is splendid Bruges. Over the years this medieval canal city has gone by many names: City of Romance, Venice of the North, the City That Time Forgot, and Cultural Capital of Europe since 2002. However, none of these titles accurately capture the enchantment of Bruges. With the city center closed off to cars, all the stunning beauty and culture of this unforgettable city can be easily explored by foot, canal boat or horse-drawn carriage along cobblestone streets.
From Bruges you’ll make two circular rides. The first is to the authentic coastal village of De Haan and the second is to the seaside and Knokke where you can stroll along the new promenade, sunbathe on the broad sandy beach, or wander through the exclusive shopping boulevards. Finally, on your way back to Roeselare, there are opportunities to visit a chocolate manufacturer and the National Cyclist Museum.
