Those who want to explore the region around Ghent can use the cycling node network. The maps and the online route planner make it easy for you to create your own cycling route along cycling nodes, outdoor cafes and activities.

Create your own cycling route

Using junctions, you map the route out yourself (online or with a map) so it can be as short, long, flat or hilly as you want. East Flanders is divided into 5 tourist regions, and 4 of the 5 cycling networks pass through  Ghent. Obviously, this network allows you to discover the other regions of Flanders as well.  

The following maps are available at the tourist office of VisitGent (subareas East Flanders):  

  • Ghent and surroundings (routes in and departing from Ghent) 
  • Leiestreek (the Lys Region)
  • Scheldeland
