Destination Vélo

The story

Flanders, land of cycling

Flanders, land of cycling. This is a well-known and especially recognized adage! The unevenness of the mountains, the paved roads, the panoramas bathed in soft light, these are so many assets that make Destination Coeur de Flandre one of the favorite spots for all cycling enthusiasts.

On the adrenaline side, fans will appreciate the major sporting events, where champions compete in courage to face the Flemish roads.

On the leisure side, the network-points nodes, the Accueil Vélo, the equipped areas, a whole range of offers is intended for you to facilitate the practice of cycling with family or friends.

Whatever your level, whatever your goal, your bike will fall under the spell of Flanders and so will you. On the way !
