The West-Flanders region offers an ideal mix of nature and culture. It is one of those unique places where you can enjoy silence along canals and open landscapes, but culture is never far away. Along the tour, you discover the story of the first World War (Ypres and Diksmuide). The most interesting town of this tour is of course Bruges, the famous historic town with its wonderful cultural heritage and many canals which has earned the city the surname ‘Venice of the North’.

Day 1: arrival in Roeselare
After arriving in Roeselare you can start with an optional small tour to the basilica of Dadizele and discover the landscape around the city. Or first visit Roeselare, with the National Cycling Museum, the brewery of Rodenbach, the old cemetery, the city park along the Mandel river, the Castle of Rumbeke with various exhibitions and the city center known for its vibrating shopping streets.
Day 2: Roeselare – Ypres (31 km) 
Our first cycling tour will take us to Ieper, a beautiful medieval town with a stunning market place and  the famous town-gate ‘Menenpoort’. We will also pass the Tyne Cot cemetery, the largest graveyard for English soldiers of World War I. In Ypres, you can visit the ‘In Flanders Fields Museum’ (to be paid on the spot). Cycling around Ieper is a nice experience, especially passing through the charming hills. You can also walk around the city and follow the ramparts route.
Day 3: Ypres – Diksmuide (45/60 km)
On this tour, we will pass another nice medieval town: Poperinge, popular for the hops cultivated in this area. The ‘Talbot House’ is a place of interest, it was the only place during WWI where British soldiers could rest and forget about the war for a while. Definitely worth a visit is the trappist abbey of Saint Sixtus where the Westvleteren is brewed, voted best beer in the world. We will cycle further along the banks of the IJzer to Diksmuide, where the IJzertoren, a well-known monument of the Great War can be visited. You can also enjoy the beauty of the historic market place.
Day 4: Diksmuide – Bruges (61 km)
It is almost unbelievable how much cultural heritage can be discovered in such a rural region. Indeed, the destination we are all excited about is of course Bruges, with its historic center and the stunning belfry
Day 5: circular ride to Knokke (59 km)
On the fifth day, we will explore the area between Bruges and Knokke, the most mondain village of the Belgian coast. It will be another unforgettable trip, through the polder landscapes and the dunes. The main sight of this tour is the nature reserve ‘Het Zwin’ and the picturesque village of Damme. Or, when it is warm enough, you can go swimming in the sea!
Day 6: circular ride to De Haan (52 km)
This day will again be an exciting day as we will visit another nice place on the Belgian coast. De Haan is a village which has preserved the ‚Belle Epoque‘ style (19th century).
Day 7: Bruges – Roeselare (59 km)
Our last cycling tour will bring us back to Roeselare. This tour passes two nice castles, d’Aertrycke and Wijnendaele. Both are really worth a visit! After arriving in Roeselare, it is possible to visit the National Cycling Museum (to be paid on the spot).
