With Biking Box to the clay statues of No Man’s Land


A remarkable piece of art in a remarkable landscape: the 600.000 clay statues, representing all the dead in Belgium during World War I and for always connected with present generation. A message towards the future, expressing HOPE, represented in 40.000 kids-clay statues who break out of the huge Egg. Protection and a feeling of threatening as well.

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.

Bicycle rental is possible during the last weeks of the renovation works!


The last mile is the longest! This also applies to the ongoing winter renovation work on our building. Nevertheless, the bike rental season starts again from now on. As long as the Biking Bar cannot be open normally due to the work, you can still take a nice bike ride with Biking Box bicycles in the following way:
- call +32 (477) 592382
- send an e-mail to info@bikingbox.be
- last minute: visit our partner shop: RAIDA in the same Menenstraat 36 (a little closer to the Menenpoort)

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.
