Dive into Ieper’s medieval past in the town centre and pay a visit to the Cloth Hall on one of the most beautiful market squares of Belgium or go for a walk around the 17th Century Vauban ramparts.

Today we collect you from Zaventem airport in Brussels or Lille TGV Station and take you to our home for the next 2 nights in Ieper or Ypres as it is also known. Lille is a short one hour from Paris or Charles de Gaulle airport. We recommend a mid-morning arrival.

The first job will be to assemble your bike and Bikestyle staff will be on hand if you have mechanical problems or need any other assistance. The rest of the day is yours.

Depending on your arrival time there should be time for a shakedown ride. It will be possible to do a ride for those who have come in the morning.

To complete your day we will visit the Menin Gate to watch the last post.

Every evening (at 8 pm) since 1928, the Last Post has been sounded under the imposing memorial arches of the Menin Gate. The Last Post is the traditional salute to the fallen and is played in honour of the memory of the soldiers of the then British Empire, who fought and died in the ‘Immortal Ypres Salient’ between 1914 and 1918.
