Tomorrow’s Liege-Bastogne-Liege Sportif will be a tough day on the bike so we offer an easy ride today to keep the legs fresh for tomorrow. We also visit the Flanders Bike Valley Ridley wind tunnel near Beringen.

t’s not because we keep it easy it won’t be special.

We won’t cycle over or around the water, but through the water! Cycling Through Water, Limburg’s sunken cycle bridge, has made Time magazine’s Greatest Places list. The annual list includes unique and awe-inspiring sites around the world.

The cycle lane is the only place in Belgium to make the top 100. The list includes destinations in 48 countries.

Come cycling through the water in Bokrijk as you ride straight through a lake on a 3 metre wide, 212-metre long cycle path. You’ll be able to see, feel, smell and even touch the water … without needing a wet suit.

After our ride and lunch, we’ll visit the Flanders Bike Valley Ridley wind tunnel near Beringen. (TBC)

The Flanders’ Bike Valley wind tunnel is a special, independent, low-speed wind tunnel specifically developed for the bicycle industry and cyclists. The test results will contribute to optimum aerodynamics in the end products: bicycles, clothing, helmets, etc. The attitude of the athlete on the bicycle can also be tested and improved. This is very important in the time trial discipline. The wind tunnel is 50 m long and can generate wind speeds of 30 m/s (108 km/h).
