The Hageland hills, which are lined with rows and rows of vines and fruit trees, provide a stunning rural backdrop for your ride. But the steep hills also make for a gruelling trek requiring you to stand up on your pedals. Just ask Sven Nys, who criss-crossed through the Hageland from his Balenberg during his many training sessions. This route starts from the Sven Nys Cycling Center. Sven Nys himself mapped out this 93-kilometre loop, which follows his favourite training route. A challenging ride, with a few beauty spots en route to take a break.
