Tips

  • Ziggy Sobotka

    One piece of the much longer cycling track along the canal. Good surface, not very large, but good enough. Great for road cycling.

  • Laurens

    Nice and efficient way to go from Mechelen to Leuven or the other way around without traffic.

    • April 17, 2020

  • Pascal Vanhove

    Shortest quiet cycle road from Mechelen south direction Louvain. Good connection from the north to the Hageland.

    • May 8, 2020

  • Laurent

    Very nice ride, good tarmac

  • Adri

    Certain parts are not too wide, beware of cyclists coming the other way. Otherwise very pleasant, as well as practical for interval training.

    • August 5, 2018

  • Pedaleur de Gand

    Bikeroad along the canal between Mechelen and Leuven. Great for commuting or as part of a bike tour

  • Vito

    The most crowded place, a true crossroad for bikers highways

    • April 23, 2020

  • SNDR GRMNS

    The first mention of a bridge in this spot goes back all the way to 1234. The first iron bridge was installed in 1893, and was destroyed in (and rebuilt after) both World Wars.

  • SNDR GRMNS

    Excellent tarmac (well, mostly) connecting Leuven and Mechelen. Some lovely views to be had, and not too many bridges and crossings to get your average down.

    This section is part of the F8 cycle path, running between Leuven and Mechelen. This path follows the canal connecting both cities and are highly used cylcling and hiking/running paths. This section is asphalted and accessible on both sides, but the indicated side is (usually) the goose-free side (those things can be grumpy, honestly..).

  • SNDR GRMNS

    Gets quite tedious if you ride this stretch too often, but it's an efficient way of getting from A to B.

    • May 24, 2020

  • Laurens

    Smooth road, and the most efficient way to ride to the city of Mechelen. This is a very popular road for cyclist since there are no cars allowed and you can ride along the canal for a long time.
