Join us for a bike trip to enjoy the beauty of Scheldeland (SW of Antwerp).

Last week (May 16th) I went biking along the river Scheldt to check out a promising route. This bike trip will be impressive because of the unexpected nature scenery so close to the city.

So don’t stay in and get yourselves overwhelmed by surprising places along the river.
The round trip is about 50 km long, with lots of stops on the way to rest and drink. Shortly after noon we will have opportunity to order lunch (Kaai 22, Temse) or - for those who don't - to spent free time and wander around in a small town called Temse.

Self-supply : bring your own drinks, fruit, (and picnic if you don't want to order lunch). In the afternoon we also have stops but because of Sunday afternoon, terraces will be crowded and probably no free seats - so prepare your self-supplies.

Weather : Remember, Belgium is a very green country ! If the weather forecast is bad, I might consider to postpone by a week.
In case of sun shine, put on a hat or sun protection - I got sun burned myself middle May !

Bike: In case you don’t own a personal, comfortable bike, there’s plenty of possibilities to rent a bike. You might consider these ones as well: Protected content or Protected content or Protected content . Be aware that some shops don’t open on Sundays, not before 10 am or close at 6 pm already. Just check it out in time because most of the time, it is not settled in a finger snap – be prepared.

Start is 9:30 am sharp because of the waterbus schedule.
In case you're late - you might consider taking the next one, half an hour later and catch up. (We follow the bike network n° Protected content - Protected content - Protected content - Protected content
Return is 6 pm back in Antwerp, Steenplein.
