Rate route!

Monday, May 10, 2021 by J.D.Ridden this route yesterday. Very nice route, but there is 1 mistake: at junction 12 you should first follow 7 which then connects to 10, so 12-7-10 and then continue as indicated in the route.

Sunday, April 19, 2020 by K.V.I've already done this bike route twice in two weeks, because we love it so much! Preferably with a gravel bike or bike with slightly thicker tires though (not a road bike), because there are a lot of unpaved sections, potholes in the road, thick stones, and forest roads (and also three serious inclines, but that could just be down to my fitness level). I must honestly admit that the state of the roads is really scary at times, but nice and adventurous! In the direction of Holsbeek, there is a nice little road along the highway where you can get some serious speed on your bike. Along the way you will also encounter many sheep, cows and horses!

I would really recommend this route!

Monday, October 15, 2018 by T.M.Some short, intense climbs, beautiful views. Excellent road condition, some parts are unpaved but with caution it is perfectly doable with a racing bike. Signage is clear.

Sunday, August 26, 2018 by K.J.route now runs via junctions, so no problem in terms of signage. Road is in very poor condition in some places though, on the edge to do with road bike.
Vlierbeek Abbey, Horst castle worth a stop.

Saturday, July 14, 2018 by Vlaanderen FietslandDue to the renewal of the bicycle network in the Hageland in the spring of 2018, this route was fully grafted onto the bicycle network. The comments below regarding signage not being able to be found has now been resolved.

Monday, August 21, 2017 by S.V.Someone signposts were not easily visible (behind plants), and just missing at some junctions.
But a beautiful route in the rolling countryside, and Horst castle is an ideal place to take a rest 😉

Sunday, August 20, 2017 by I.V.Nice route, pity that the signage leaves much to be desired. Up to Leuven (left from Horst) it was Ok, after that it was often to find out by yourself.

Monday, August 14, 2017 by K.V.Very nice bike ride with some climbs, but as a reward wonderful panoramas of Holsbeek and surroundings. 2 points of improvement are the signposting of the route, should be more slices and in clear places. Too bad about the road along the motorway before Wezemaal coming from Horst, one could also ride under the motorway and continue towards Wezemaal along dr slope, much nicer and calmer.

Tuesday, July 26, 2016 by K.V.Very scenic bike route
Many ascents and descents, recreational non-trained cyclists will be on foot uphill at times
Few stops to drink
You have to look for the signs at the start, especially if you have just left the recreation area of Kessel-Lo
