    Belgium

    Help with Belgium ___________
    Fiancee and I heading to Belgium next week for a bike ride. Thinking about Bruge based rides? This is rent-a-fat tire 5 day deal (not packing our road bikes). We have biked the Danau and loved it.
    Any suggestions on routes, where to stay, whether to stay put and ride from hotel in Bruge or ride town to town?
    Appreciate any ideas.

    Ghent would have been a far better choice with more variety in the loops you can cycle. From entirely flat to a little bit hilly.

    South of Ghent, along the Scheldt:

    Combining two (or three) of them with a one night stay in Oudenaarde is a good idea.

    or along the Leie:

    59 cycle tracks along towpaths of rivers and canals and on former railway tracks in Belgium, and along the border regions of France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg with Belgium>> http://www.bikely.com/listpaths/by/fietslogies

    Do you have any advice on Beer brewery touring? We will be traveling there in July.
