Description

Beautiful nature reserves and picturesque towns stretch out not only in the Netherlands, but also just across the border. For example, explore the surroundings of Lokeren, a town in East Flanders, Belgium. The city is located on the River Durme. Lokeren has always been an important place for the textile industry; until well into the twentieth century this was the largest source of income for Lokeren. Hair factories in particular have sprung up like mushrooms here. Near Lokeren you will find the beautiful nature reserve Molsbroek with an area of approximately 100 hectares. The landscape consists of alternating swamp, wetland forest, river dunes and moist grasslands. As a result, there is a wide variety of flora and fauna. The regional nature association, VZW Durme, manages the reserve and ensures that the area remains in top condition. On the eastern edge is a visitor center where you can get more information about this beautiful area. You will also find nature reserve De Buylaers in the built-up core, 5 kilometers from the center. This nature reserve is located on the left bank of the Durme and it consists of twenty hectares of varied meadows and reed beds. The spontaneously naturalizing Verloren Bos with its impressive drifting dunes borders this nature reserve. Lochristi is a place just west of Lokeren. Lochristi is best known for its flowers, azaleas and begonias. A number of beautiful sights in Lochristi are the Sint-Niklaaskerk, the Rozelaar Castle with a beautiful park, the Duiventoren and the park of Beervelde where the garden days take place every year. When you start the bike ride, you naturally want to be sure that your bike is in top condition. You will find the Profile Dierickx location at the start and end point of the route. The bicycle specialist is ready to thoroughly check and refurbish your bicycle. With the bicycle discount pass you get a discount of 10 euros on the maintenance and possible repair costs.
