Tyne Cot Route

The route follows the Ypres Salient and confronts you with a number of relics of the First World War. Dozens of military cemeteries along the route are silent witnesses to the dramatic toll of the “Great War.”

The route starts in Staden, goes to the New British Cemetery in Passchendaele. You’ll pass Zonnebeke, the British Tyne Cot Cemetery and De Oude Kaasmakerij.

On the way back, there is the possibility to stop at Hof Ter Walle where the butter and buttermilk are prepared in a real wooden churn, and you can taste that!

Fun to know: John Mac Crae wrote his war poem “In Flanders Fields” in Essex Farm Cemetery. This turned the simple Flemish poppy into an international flower of peace.

The Mill Route

The 34 km Solex route takes us to the 4 windmills that made up this route. The route is completely paved and finds its way over slightly hilly terrain so a suitable route for the solexes.

The tour includes a perfect balancebetween riding in the habitation, where a thirst quencher can be found, and riding among the cultivated fields where you can smell the fresh greens like celery from a distance. The first stop is at café and friterie Sint-Elooi.

We then move on to the artisanal brewery of The Dolle Brewers. Here it is possible to get to know The Mad Brewers and their beers a little better by scheduling a brewery visit (with or without tastings😊).

Food & Drinks:

  • Sint-Elooi
  • De Dolle Brouwers
  • Herberg de Speelman

“At first I wasn’t too keen on it, thought it was like a trottinette with a motorcycle. Nothing was further from the truth, once you are riding it worked really relaxing.”

- Bram B.

“Unique experience! The gentle wind whipping around you… exploring the picturesque roads… along with the soothing hum of that solex in your ears… savoring it!”

- Matthias R.

“We are from the area but still did a lot of great courses where we had never even ridden before.”
