Biking Box restarts despite the Covid 19-crisis: new projects, more cycling enjoyment and a tremendous 'biking bar' after the ride

Biking Box, the bicycle experience center for the Westhoek, has opened its doors wide again despite all the corona misery. In the Biking Bar itself it is nice to stay again. The offer has been expanded with, besides delicious breakfast formulas, also the possibility of barbecue and tapas with local regional products. For now only by appointment and for groups. The restrictive corona measures do not allow otherwise, the more so because foreign bicycle tourists remain absent. We are especially able to work out everything to your liking by reservation. This certainly also applies to bicycle tours! Guided tours in which we, as an experienced cycling guide, take everyone in tow, through the landscape but also strolling along historical stories. Where and when possible, we also literally taste the delicious local produce. Either during our Covered Table (group formula from at least 8 people). Or afterwards in the Biking Bar of course!

The crisis has of course hit our sector very hard. But we are happy and proud that we have been able to close nice permanent deals: with the Kazou summer camps and also with the Province of West Flanders at Domein De Blankaart. Cycling – walking-boating in 1 arrangement you can do there all summer with Biking Box bicycles. For this we have specially purchased 14 new bicyles: with disc brakes and 21 gears. That’s what you can call: taking the flight forward.
There will also be a Nico Mattan Expo coming to September: the last West Flemish winner of Ghent-Wevelgem (15 years ago) is thought up with appropriate honor. Fortunately, Ghent-Wevelgem also takes place, October 11 as an alternative date. With the start just before the doors of our Biking Bar, this promises to be a ‘catch-up maneuver’ à la Mattan for Biking Box!
Even more is on the way: a cycling tourist community, a supporter club of the Gaviria friends … Continue to build (literally) our unique garden terrace, the Ypres Velodrome Garden. And above all, we will go back on the bike with you as much as possible! In appropriate bubbles and afterwards you choose whether the après-bike is to be tasted with or without bubbles. See you soon, this summer and all autumn in the Biking Bar and by bike with the Biking Box!

We hope to see you all back, especially our English speaking cycling lovers, that we needed to miss for much too long so far! Let us beat the virus and come back together on a bicycle experience In Flanders Fields!
