From March to December, let Pro Velo take you on a ride. Performance and physical exercise take a back seat, as we (re)discover the pleasures of cycling along a wealth of scenic trails.
Register by the preceding Friday.
An excellent activity and unique way to rediscover Brussels!
Cycling some 16 km in northern Brussels, we encounter many of the biggest comic book heroes and heroines. Professional guides from Pro Velo lead the way.
Come by your own bike or rent one of ours (for free) when making your reservation. Riding along is also free, but registration is compulsory. To register, visit this website (no registrations on the Pro Velo website): https://shop.agenda.brussels/en/expand/init/2093

We drive by many of his most famous buildings -- like the Horta Museum, the Autrique House and Hôtel Solvay -- but also some lesser-known gems. Our tour traverses Ixelles and Schaerbeek, and is open to all (levels of fitness, prior knowledge, ...). There's no more pleasant or unwinding way to discover the work of the grandmaster of the Art Nouveau style.
The Union, after all, supports countless urban developmental, social, ecological, recreational and design projects that improve the quality of life and sustainable development throughout the continent. As such, Europe is also present in Brussels in this sense: by tangibly supporting a host of small, local projects in its own epicentre.
The tour is also available in french at 10:00 am and in dutch at 2:00 pm
During this tour, we will drive through the European district and the Cinquantenaire park (stopping at the Berlaymont building) and the beautiful Art Nouveau Squares quarter.
Next, we continue our route to the city centre through the city’s main park (federal parliament, royal palace) and its contrasting neighbourhoods, remarkable monuments, and charming squares (Marolles district and the Palais de Justice, the Dansaert and Beguinage districts, ...). An original route, that steers clear from clichés!
The city’s culinary specialities include bloempanch, pottekeis, geuze sour beer, … We will discover where and how these delights are traditionally made – and, of course: how they taste. (Spoiler: very well!)
This tour focuses on gastronomy, but will also touch on other aspects of the culinary history of Brussels.
For a 5 euro supplement, you get to taste two delicious local specialities and one beer.
All these questions, and many more, will be answered during this bike tour, dedicated to the remarkable brewing heritage of Brussels. Belgian beer culture, featured on UNESCO’s World Heritage list since 2016, is amazingly vast, and well-present in Brussels.
Starting from the Maison des Brasseurs on the Grand Place, we will discover both old and new breweries, as well as many of the infamous bars which dot the city centre. Afterward we head to the canal district, with its old industrial breweries, to reach the Brussels Gueuze Museum and the Cantillon brewery.
Une très agréable visite de Bruxelles qui allie architecture Art Nouveau et espaces verts. Du Parc de Bruxelles, le circuit rejoint Schaerbeek, la Maison Autrique et l’avenue Louis Bertrand bordée d’immeubles très intéressants. Puis le parc Josaphat, superbe espace vert urbain du début du XXème siècle, le parc du Cinquantenaire, le quartier des squares et enfin le parc Leopold. Bref du vert et de belles façades pleins les yeux !
