Rental bicycles by appointment only, listen here to Belgian Radio where 'BIKING BOX' was an item with Ghent-Wevelgem

This pandemic crisis continues and does not allow for a reopening or real restart for the time being. The tourism sector to which we are a part continues to be hit extremely hard. The 2nd passage / start from Ghent (Ypres) - Wevelgem happened in front of the doors of the Biking Box Cycling Experience Centre once again in a bad way. Nobody was allowed to come near. Nevertheless we keep our heads high, thanks to a lot of media attention, including Radio 1-Sporza report that you can listen to below. In the meantime: renting bicycles is possible, but only by appointment.

Make an appointment by phone or e-mail request and we will either come and collect the bicycles at the Biking Box bicycle café (in Menenstraat 15). Or at other locations that can be mutually coordinated. Possibly delivered to your hotel or B&B. In any case, we have provided 2 alternative locations, which are already designated as a fixed pick-up point until the end of June. After all, it is not always possible to provide someone at the Biking Box Bicycle Experience Centre, which must remain closed. Dito for returning it there. Although you can leave the bicycles closed in front of the door, after which they will be safely stored later that evening. It is as it is at the moment and we can only hope that when cycling experience tourism can really restart, this will happen without further corona nuisance. Everyone now realizes that it makes little sense to continue in such an inefficient way as it has to be done since more than a year… Everyone yearns for ‘back to normal’, so that we too can go back on the road with nice and wider cycling groups. Despite this stressy situation, behind the scenes we are bravely trying to ‘build’ on, albeit with the handbrake on. Safety & survival first!
