A historical look back at World War 1… by bike! An experience on two wheels in and around the cultural town of Ypres, including an authentic picnic from a local farmhouse butchery in Wijtschate to start, followed by a lovely bicycle ride past various historical, war time sites, a break at Brasserie Kazematten and a visit to the ‘Hooge Crater’ museum!
In short, a fantastic blend of culture, history, nature, de-stressing, local craft and, last but not least, … movement!
