In this article EuroVelo's Belgian National Coordinator Centre for the Brussels and Wallonia regions, Pro Velo, highlight an example of a successful national cycle friendly service scheme, which was initiated by the Wallonia Tourism Commission in 2011.

Did you know that nearly 600 establishments (hotels, gites, guestrooms, youth hostels, camp sites), restaurants, tourist attractions, museums, tourist organisations and producers have committed to tailoring their services to the needs of cyclist visitors and travellers? Identifiable from the ‘Bikes Welcome’ logo attached to the entrance, these establishments guarantee services adapted to bike users.

Located no more than 5km from a RAVeL, EuroVelo or intersecting ‘Points Noeuds’ cycle route, they offer services and facilities suited to your needs:

  • Useful information and advice on routes, weather, etc.;
  • Parking space or secure shelter for your bike;
  • Repair kit and first aid kit;
  • Drinking water supply.
