Biking Bar, the place to be if you wish to discover all about the cycling and beer
cultural heritage of Belgium & the Westhoek also known as Flanders Fields
Biking Box Cycling Experience Center: enjoy and discover all about Belgian Cycling & Beer Heritage in beaufitul Westhoek or Flanders Fields, nearby the Menin Gate!
Biking Box opens its doors with a complete concept of outdoor and indoor cycling experience
In the Biking Bar you find your ideal starting point for a visit to Ypres/In Flanders Fields on the bicycle. This is also where Ghent-Wevelgem starts and has its denouement with climbings on the famous Kemmelberg and crossing the Plougstreets. The cobble stones of Paris-Roubaix are nearby or you can taste the Tour of Flanders. But above all, this region is quite exceptional for its history and cycling-friendly roads.
You can check-in for rental bicycles or guided tours. With a good coffee or tea we discuss the options for next day’s ride. Of course after your ride, you will enjoy even more the special atmosphere. A good Belgian beer is by far the best compensation or reward after your bike-effort! If you are more a passive sports freak, why not drop by to watch live-sports on TV (cycling, football, rugby…)? Have a quick look already on what you can enjoy on drinks & snacks or desserts in the Biking Bar (click here).
Biking Bar is all about cycling, but even if you are NOT a cyclist, you certainly enjoy our great drinks (+ 50 beers, picon maison, apértif Biking Box…!) and tasteful snacks & sweethies.
You feel and smell the rich history and heritage of Belgian Cycling, Walking across the Biking Box Cycling Experience Centre is a discovery tour itself: shirts of cycling champions of the past, amazing bicycles… the Biking Boutique & shop with cycling products or original souvenirs, such as the famous POPPYSHIRT-collection… Even technical assistance is possible in the Biking Box Atelier (working place). And when crossing the building: a secret ‘sunshine’ garden: the outside bar, called “Wipers Velodrome”. Once you are in, you will understand about the name!
The Biking Box-cycling experience centre offers also a fantastic Biking Shop with cycling related souvenirs, ‘cycling beers’, and of course the Poppyshirt and other cycle-wear. Big labels like Bio-Racer (cyclewear, incl. the whole range of Poppyshirt-products), Morgan Blue (cleaning products for your bicycle, maintenance products…), Schwalbe (tyres for all kinds of bicycles) …
