We meet around 10am at my store in the heart of Antwerp. We jump on the bikes and take almost immediately the bike lane that will carry us 25km far from Antwerp. We cycle through the city and other small villages, by the river and through the forest on an almost entirely flat route. We ride along and with nature on a sustainable, innovative and cool wooden bike. We stop for awesome photos and short videos at the best spots. Meanwhile we listen to music through my bluetooth speaker on the bike! After around 1,5h there we are. City of Mechelen, right in the center of this small Flemish gem. It's where we take a break. There you may enjoy a drink or a quick snack. We then check our photos and upload instagram stories, take a deep rejuvenating breath, jump on the bikes again and head back to Antwerp in awesome style to enjoy the extra...smile!
Coming from a multi-disciplinary and international background, I have always been passionate about travelling and exploring countries and people along with unique aspects of each and every one of them.

I have been enjoying this journey with friends from all over the world so much all these years, that I left my job as a hotel consultant to start up a shop and organize cool, joyful and safe bike tours and trips in the beautiful Flemish Region.
When we are back, we will replace minerals, vitamins and carbs with tea, fruits, nuts and other healthy snacks. That's on the…

On our way to Mechelen from Antwerp we cycle the countryside of Berchem, Mortsel, Hove, Kontich, Duffel and many other minor yet picturesque municipalities of the Flemish region.
