Between October 2020 to July 2021, Flanders is launching eight new exciting icon cycling routes, which together form the Flanders Route. These themed routes, ranging from mid-length to long distance, will follow the official cycling network. The routes will connect the charming Flemish regions and art cities in a sustainable, healthy way.

The signposts for the old LF routes will be gradually dismantled from 9 November 2020 and will be completely gone by the start of spring 2021. If you would like to cycle on one of the old routes during this period, you can use the GPS routes on the website, Grote Routepaden: fietsen.groteroutepaden.be/nl/fietsroutes/lf-netwerk-vlaanderen (only availble in Dutch).

Flanders also has four EuroVelo (EV) routes. EuroVelo is a network of European signposted cycling routes. The Coastal Route is part of routes EV 4 and 12, and the Maas Route is the Flemish part of EV 19. The Hills Route will occasionally link up with EV 5. You can find more information about the EuroVelo routes on eurovelo.com/belgium.
