There is no better setting to enjoy an exquisite barbecue after cycling than in our Biking Box-Velodrome Garden. Lovely garden terrace (it is also possible inside the Biking Bar itself) where you can see the meat being barbecued on site by our chef. Two options: “All you can eat” (€32) or “Medium Formula” (€25). With barbecued potatoes, vegetables and an extensive range of appetizers or snacks. Both formulas can also already be included with an aperitif (+ €6.50)
Enjoy cycling and happy food from de Westhoek (Flanders Fields) with our electrical picknick-bicycle. Min. 4 to max. 8 persons can get our picknick-box in this specific bicycle. Including fresh drinks. Groups pay 50 EUR for this picknick bicycle if they also hire other bicycles from Biking Box. Only this picknick-bicycle? Then 70 EUR is the price for a day. Picknick prepared by Biking Box: 19 € each person.
At last.. After a long winter, spring is almost there. Together with Belgian opening of cycling season, the Biking Bar will open its doors again. First evening on Friday 25 February. Also on Saturday and Sunday for the first time again bicycle rental service (without having to make reservation in advance) in the morning. Also open in the afternoon till evening. These are the openings hours till begin of April: and Easter Holiday:
Because of very urgent renovation works we had to close the Biking Bar during winter (no isolation, impossible to get a good temperature as long as windows has not been replaced by the owner of the building). But all rental bicycles are still available at our partner's shop: the E-bike shop 'Cool Electro Cycles', very nearby, into direction of the Menin Gate, at number 36. If you still want to visit the Biking Bar, e.g. for our shop, please make an appointment by phone or e-mail? We can even open the place to give you the bicycles ourselves. Or to receive afterwards. On Sundays and Mondays, the E-bike shop is closec. So call or mail us to be there for your bike delivery! Of course we hope to re-open as soon as possible! Despite all covid-troubles, there is no doubt at all that Biking Box and the Biking Bar will continue in 2022 and if it's up to us, still many years afterwards!
This is what you can get in the Biking Bar!
For the second time official start of Ghent-Wevelgem took place at the front door of Biking Box' Biking Bar in Ypres. But as the COVID pandemic crisis continues, it did not allow us to open our doors... A 2nd edition without cycling fans in or around the race.... The sports, leisure & tourism sector to which we are a part continues to hit extremely hard.
Fortunately, we still had Radio 1-Sporza who came to visit us. Here the radio-reportage here !
Silence rules during this long and sad COVID-winter months. As long as this cursed virus rules our lives, we can only hope and pray for a normal life again 'soon'... But when will that be? Being part of the world of tourism, 'biking' events and 'horeca', we - amongst many others - keep our fingers crossed that we can make a brand new start in coming spring or ultimately early summer... With this video we give you at least a bit of those vibes, that all of us have missed so much in 2020..
Biking Box Cycletours also continues to build on the future in these hard corona times. Of course, this season is largely wasted. We are still waiting for permission to rent bikes back (not before June 8, that's for sure). And in what - feasible - way this may become possible again. The bicycle café is also still flat. And the planned hiring of new top racing bicycles has been postponed for the time being. But for the rest, we try to look forward as best we can. There will be an exhibition around the last West-Flemish winner of Ghent-Wevelgem, Nico Mattan (victory in 2005). If Ghent-Wevelgem is still being run this year (October 11 is the new date), we want to have the MATTAN-EXPO ready as soon as possible and open the doors of the Biking Bar. We are nevertheless not standing still in terms of the summer program. We bring an exciting new offer around 'Cycling & Boating in De Westhoek', new thematic tours (also downloadable on GPS and using our new APP on your phone) and a beautiful sporty 3-day for both cyclists and mountain bikers (program already partly published on this website). If it is not allowed by the government this year, this is already ready for the new season.
A few days before the start of Ghent-Wevelgem, just in front of the Biking Bar... This could have been a great first anniversary party, just 12 months after what was alreaday a real stunt-opening... We had planned to write today an extraordinary, positive and enthousiast article... Full of news about new tours, programs, a VIP-day with the cycling classic of 29 March... For the first time starting in Ypres, in stead of 'Ghent'... The Biking BOX-cycling experience center was about to 'explode' in the most positive way of its significance. But then came 'corona'...

The Biking Bar as a haven of peace center for the bicycle fans, that's indeed what Biking Box has become. Now also with superb front terrace! See here the images during the fitting. Freddy Maertens, 2-times world champion cycling and 3-time winner of the Green Jersey in the Tour de France was also our guest, as he is the official Ambassador of Biking Box! This coincided with our multi-day "Belgian Cycling Classics ' that we organized for 20 New Zealand and Australian bicycle tourists They had a ' meet and greet ' with the cycling legend during a cosy get-together in the Biking Bar!
