Fietsroute

Cycling in the Flemish Ardennes

RondeShop

Experience the Tour in the wake of living legends such as Eddy Merckx, Johan Museeuw and Tom Boonen. You ride from slope to slope, where every cobblestone, every bit of asphalt and every square centimeter are witnesses to more than a hundred years of cycling history. Enjoy the wonderful views on top of the Muur and the Paterberg and imagine how, just like a real Tour winner, you only ride the Oudenaardse meet. In short: the ultimate cycling experience in the Flemish Ardennes.
