Forest Canopy Bike Ride Through Giant Spiral Path in Belgium

This summer of 2019 Belgium did something incredible for their bike enthusiasts. “Cycle through the trees” is the new elevated circular bike path connected with Belgium’s bike network. It has perfect resting places inside the alcoves with benches and the ride is not ticketed. It’s located in the northwestern province of Limburg, an hour or so outside of Brussels. “The new cycle path climbs gradually so that you can cycle through the treetops. You ride 700 meters along a cycle bridge – a double circle 100 meters in diameter – that slowly rises to a height of 10 meters (32 feet) before then descending again, giving you a sensational 360° experience! Safety is ensured thanks to a subtle wire net with a handrail, and the path’s three-meter width gives everyone enough room. This makes ‘Cycling through the Trees’ an accessible experience for everyone.” Absolutely gorgeous structure in the middle of the forest can be appreciated even more by watching it’s YouTube video. This project is actually a second one after “Cycling Through the Water” where bicyclists would ride beneath the water level through the pond also located on the Limburg bike network.
