  • 48km
  • expandable to 60 km (with Kemmelberg)
  • classic/road-/mountainbike

The Wine & Cycling Heritage Tour

Full day

For the more ‘Bourgondic’ cycling tourists among us, this wine and cycling heritage tour is a must. Monteberg & Entre Deux Monts in 'Heuvelland' are surprising discoveries in the capital region of beers and ... wine as well! Enjoy and listen our astonishing stories of heroic cycling classics (Ghent-Wevelgem) or Tour de France-passages. Get in touch with the famous champions of cycling, of which some of them were very local (Freddy Maertens, Frank Vandenbroucke, Johan Museeuw, Michel Pollentier...).
Since we have road race bicycles as well, you might try the extended version also (from 80 till max. 100 km through Flanders Mountains).
Last but not least, discover the very surprising "Zilver Cruys", several highly reputated wines that easily compete the better Loire & Bourgogne wines, but here cultivated in the former battlefields and so nearby Monuments & trenches.

  • 70km
  • Expandable to 50 or even 75 km
  • Road bicycles or mountainbike (option)
  • Choose your vinyard to visit!
  • Wine and war on the same fields of Flanders...
