We offer routes for gravel riders of every level. You can choose between three routes of 60, 100 and 140 km.
You are going to explore the Plugstreets, ride the hilly and cobbled climbs of Gent-Wevelgem and feel the deep connection with the First World War. The elevation gain will be between 700 and 1500 m, depending on the distance you choose.

We'll ride in two loops: a morning and afternoon loop and both have a feed station. For the 60 km, there will only be a morning loop. Halfway you'll return to the festival area to get spoiled with a delicious lunch burger or pasta (veggie too and it's included). Start and finish are at Le Chalet in Kemmel, a breathtaking domain located in the beautiful Heuvelland at the foot of the Kemmelberg.
