Building a life on a cycling dream, first as a promising youth cyclist and later working many years as a professional cycling journalist, Kurt Titeca (°1968) together with Renate Drappier started up the LCMT (now known as the Luxemburg Cycling & Mountainbike Tour).
The organisation group also launched the yearly Houffamarathon (mountainbike) for about 2300 bikers (from 2004 till 2012). The ambition to make something special of their own environment in Flanders Fields was the main reason to leave this project to others. www.lcmt.be still is a brilliant more days concept of Biking Box Cycletours but now there is the permanent touristic activity with fully guided cycling & history based tours. Mostly starting from In Flanders Fields, but also more days-tours that are showing the most interesting places in Flanders and Northern France, such as Bruges, the coastline, the Flemish Ardennes, the Somme & Artois, the Roubaix-cobble stone area and many more (developing projects in Normandy and up to Verdun).
Your ideal guide & tour-operator
Grown up in the shadow of Hill 60 (the Great War battlefield). This area is also well known as the territory of big cycling classics (Paris-Roubaix, Ghent-Wevelgem, Tour of Flanders…). A true passion for healthy sports and an overwhelming knowledge of history… inspired to create Biking Box Cycletours. It’s all well structured in Active People Performing Tours Ltd. (APP-Tours).
No story or hidden corner in Flanders Fields stays not unfold for your cycling guide. Almost 20 years of experience in organizing cycling tours for hundreds of mountainbikers or cyclists makes it possible to prepare also your unforgettable day when you come to visit Flanders, Northern France or even the Ardennes on a bicycle.
‘Carpe diem’ or ‘enjoy life’ in respect for nature and local cultural traditions, this philosophy allows you to discover also the Burgundian fruits of this region: Trappists and other special beers, wine culture on local hills and so much other tasteful food and drinks. It helps indeed to share some philosophical aspects of life when meeting history!
