Vimy Ridge & Artois Bike Xperience Tour

A superb cycling tour, you can never beat on a car or bus: with off-road tracks (on our rental mountainbikes or hybrid bikes) we cycle from coal mine city of Lens towards the ridges of 1915 battles 'N.D. de la Lorette'. Incredible history but at the same time specific cycling fun. Also possible with E-bikes or classic bicycle on the asphalt-roads. But so much more intense when going off-road through woods and former battlefields.

Visit Flanders, a place to enjoy and cherish

Visiting the 'Westhoek' (translated: 'western corner' in the outback of a country) in Flanders is an outstanding experience. You face history, of course, with so many traces of the Great War. You enjoy delicious products that also are the result of cultivation in a tremendous landscape. You will cycle around and learn about the famous Flemish cycling heritage. But you also get a chance to cross a border that in fact is no border: Northern France or 'French-Flanders' exhaling sometimes even more the 'old Flanders' than the current geographical Flanders. With the sea and beaches so near, the "Westhoek" and a holiday with Biking Box Cycletours guarantees you to find peace and feel the best sensations one can ever meet. Still a silent message always can be heard when entering the more than hundred military cemeteries, the Memorial sites and musea referring to one of the darkest pages of mankind. Come and share it with us! We are eager to reveal all its hidden secrets and precious (tasty) food and drinks. Finally, meet local people here. They just have a special way of life that explains why the other inhabitants of Belgium, also want to spend their holidays here. Once you discovered all this, one thing is sure: you want to come back. Again and again!

Note: most pictures are ours, but we made a compilation here with the story-telling part of the videoclip, made by Westtoer. Lyrics and music by 'De Dolfijntjes'.

And yes, there is also a broader view, including the history of cycling that also colored this area with classics as Paris-Roubaix, Ghent-Wevelgem, Tour of Flanders...

When will the Biking Box be fully open again? As soon as possible of course and that is in MARCH anyway! However, we don't dare pin an exact date yet. If that date is posted here, then it must actually be OPEN on that day! Everyone (including us) yearns for the Biking Box / Biking Bar. In any case, the patience is rewarded, because the new look and new furnishings look particularly beautiful.
