Belgium

It being Belgium there are two completely separate websites each showing a distinct network of routes. 

Not only the beer, but the frites are superb, as well.


We have followed the circular 800km Vlaanderen Fietsroute, Flanders Bicycle Route round the north of Belgium and it is well signposted, hilly in the south and features history from the Romans to the Old Contemptibles. The route is made up of sections of four long distance routes: The food was good, the hotels clean and comfortable, and the beer to die for. 

There is also a Wallonian website offering information on the RAVeL network of cycle routes in the French speaking south. The RAVeL website is in French. These routes follow old railway lines in the main, so although the south of the country is hillier, the climbs may well be gentle. In the east of the country the routes continue into Luxembourg. 

Dan Gamber has written an extensive guide to cycling on Belgian river and canal towpaths.
