Icon description route Description

This signposted bicycle route takes us past the most remarkable corners of the Zwalm region, especially the typical water mills, rural villages and the gently undulating landscape with its centuries-old farmsteads. The starting point of the route is the Zwalm mill in Munkzwalm. The region is characterized by the Zwalm stream, at the time the source of energy for many water mills such as the Bostmolen, Zwalmmolen, Ijzerkotmolen and Ter Biestmolen.

Tuesday, June 1, 2021 by E.D.The route itself is a very nice one ! But on this approx. 44 km there is not a single rest point where you can order a drink. There is not even a single "bank" along the way ( and here I don't mean the one where you can withdraw money ...). The few cafes left there were ALL closed on Tuesdays. The others are mostly rundown ...

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 by Martin W.Cycled the route with partner on May 1, 2019. A beautiful route with a few bumps in the calves. Bike with enough gears (or e-bike) is a must. Signage is OK, but not always logically placed or difficult to find due to vegetation. In doubtful situations, an extra sign in the direction of travel is not a luxury.
There are few benches or picnic tables on the route. Also keep in mind that you will not encounter stores or supermarkets. In that respect, the villages make a deserted impression. A café with a terrace is no problem. Fortunately, you are sufficiently treated to beautiful panoramas. So have your camera at hand and stop regularly!

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 by E.P.It is a cycling route for somewhat experienced cyclists ! Uphill- downhill beautiful landscapes and water mills, not to mention snacks and drinks are plentiful on this cycling route through rural villages and past historic farmhouses.
( Stopping along the way for local beers and local specialties.
Highly recommended I will definitely do this route again but in reverse.Signage could be better luck I have the GPS on my bike.
Downloading in advance as GPX is a must.

Friday, January 27, 2017 by L.B.Very nice bike tour. It can indeed be difficult at some points but the beautiful nature makes up for everything and you certainly won't suffer from hunger or thirst.

Tuesday, November 1, 2016 by D.W.Beautiful and varied route, beautiful scenery and nice stops (both for food and drinks). For trained cyclists and those with e-bikes ;-)
Lucky I had uploaded the GPX file into the GPS because I had to look for the signs every now and then.

Monday, October 17, 2016 by C.D.Beautiful region, beautiful bike route.
The route is pretty well marked, only at one point did we hesitate for a while.
It is plenty to enjoy but for cyclists who are a bit trained!
