The Rentmeesterhoeve is the ideal starting point
to explore the Westhoek by bicycle

The Rentmeesterhoeve is the ideal starting point to explore the Westhoek by bike. This is perfectly possible via the cycling network, but there are also many mapped out routes around various themes: from WWI to beer experiences, from the West Flemish mountains to Ghent-Wevelgem. A selection of cycling maps is available from us. Feel free to bring your own bike but you can also hire electric bikes at €37/day (from 2 days €35/day). Reservation in advance is necessary.

Westhoek cycle network

Map out your own cycling route using the junctions. There is no shortage of pubs, cafés and restaurants along the way, and even farmhouse ice creams provide the necessary refreshment. The Westhoek cycle network is over 1,100 kilometres of cycling fun through green, flat polders, over rolling hills and past historic towns, picturesque villages and witnesses of the First World War. The network also continues across the border to the southern French Westhoek.

POP 14-18 cycle route

41,1 Kilometre

The bike ride goes back to the traces of World War I behind the front. The first stop after hell where soldiers stripped themselves of mud and blood, healed from their wounds or died from them anyway. Poperinge, or POP as the British said, was overrun by foreign troops for four years. In POP, close to civilians, they came to rest for a few days or stood trial for their failures within the business of war.

Hoppeland cycle route

53,4 Kilometre

The region around Poperinge is also known as the Hoppeland. In this undulating landscape, hop vines wind their way uphill. Hops add flavour to beer and ensure longer storage. You cycle past passionate brewers who expertly produce the tastiest craft beers. You dive into the greenery of the Helleketelbos and the Sixtusbossen and view art on your passage through Watou. Along the way, you enjoy beautiful vistas and delightful descents, the silence of the Westhoek and regional delicacies in local restaurants. Although this part of Flanders was not occupied by Germany, the scars of the First World War are also present in the landscape.

Beer cycle route Poperinge

45,8 Kilometre

The route starts at the Hop Museum in Poperinge, the starting point par excellence to explore the beer landscape of the Westhoek. The long route takes you via St Sixtus Abbey to Ypres. The City of Cats also has a lot to offer in terms of beer. The short route takes you past hop fields and brewery De Plukker straight to Leroy Breweries - site Boezinge
