Cycle through the Rupel region, past the brickmaking villages of Hemiksem, Schelle, Niel, Boom, Terhagen and Rumst. Boom pans are still a household name in the construction industry. You also cycle through rural Reet and past the castles of Kontich and Aartselaar. Ride over the dikes of Scheldt and Rupel.

Sunday, June 26, 2022 by Vera Van Hoof - TheysNice varied route, in the beginning along a lot of water and the first ½ of the route a lot of drinking opportunity. You come across many benches and picknick tables. In the beginning through narrow streets with those old workman's houses. Also many open fields. Not much parking at the starting point.
Good directions. Highly recommended.
Sunday, July 25, 2021 by S.C.Very nice route along various landscapes and industry (past and present). Small trails and almost no major track. Top.
