There are so many ways to travel and explore the world. Some people like to have their own vehicle while abroad, while others are happy hopping around via public transport. If you’re a lover of cycling, then you may well have considered arranging a cycling trip. Belgium is the ideal country to head to for this, and here are a few reasons why. 

Perfect Cycling Conditions

Belgium is a relatively flat country which means you can cruise along and enjoy the views without having to exert too much energy. On top of this, there is an incredible network of cycle routes around meaning you can enjoy offroad cycling allowing you to fully relax and savor the experience. 

Beautiful Places to Stop

Whether you want to immerse yourself in nature, soak in a city’s culture and atmosphere, or a bit of both, Belgium has plenty to offer. With some iconic cities such as Bruges, Antwerp, and Brussels, there will be something to please everyone, and the gorgeous countryside in between is peaceful and picturesque. 

Incredible Food and Drink

The best-known contributions to the world of food and drink from Belgium are some of the most popular and indulgent. From perfectly cooked fries, moreish waffles, and traditional stews, these tasty meals are perfect when washed down with the deliciously unique Belgian beer. Of course, all these dishes are best followed by some exquisite Belgian chocolate, which will also help keep you going when cycling.
