Belgium

Belgium has an extensive network of interesting long distance cycling paths which allow you to explore this fascinating country. The clearly marked out routes, many of which are car-free, are well established and safe will give you an unforgettable cycling experience.

Cycle Routes

The national cycle route network in Belgium is managed by the regions. Although the signposting systems are different, they are very similar. In Flanders, follow the long distance cycle routes called 'LF'. In Wallonia, follow the RAVeL and the international and regional long distance itineraries. The region Brussels-Capital has its own network of regional cycle routes and signposting as well.

Cycle friendly services

In Flanders, the certifications 'Fietsvriendelijk Logies' has been given to 300 hotels, hostels and campsites that are cycle-friendly. In Wallonia, the label 'Bienvenue Vélo' has been given to touristic operators from the accomodation sector, the catering sector, touristic attraction, museums and touristic organisations that offer services and equipment adapted to the needs of cycling tourists.

Printed material

Maps and guides are available on the cycle networks in both Flanders and Wallonia, although not always in English. More information is available from the relevant links below.
