Description

This tour takes you through the Flemish Ardennes near Ronse. Straight through the green surroundings you set course for cozy Oudenaarde. You will cycle through the Kluisbos on top of the Kluisberg. This 141 meter high mountain is one of the showpieces of this area.

Ronse . textile city
The starting point of this route is in Ronse. Here you will find the Saint Hermes Church with one of the best-preserved crypts in Western Europe. This crypt served as a repository for the relics of Saint Hermes, patron saint of the nervous and mentally ill. In the Middle Ages Ronse was an important place of pilgrimage, but later it became a textile city. You will learn more about the city's textile history at the Must, a textile museum. A little further on you cycle through the Kluisbergen. In this hilly area you will find the Hotondberg, the Kluisberg and a forest area of 120 hectares. This area is right on the language border.

Historic Oudenaarde
You then cycle through the Scheldt valley to Oudenaarde on the left bank of the Scheldt. In this art city you can admire all kinds of historical sights. Take a look at the town hall with the cloth hall, the Huis De Lalaing with Oudenaarde tapestries, the Church of Pamele, the Beguinage or the Liedts castle.

The Kluisbos
The Kluisbos took a lot of blows during the First World War, but also later due to the mining of sand and fieldstone. With a well-thought-out nature management plan, open spaces are created in the thick, sun-resistant canopy, giving other types of vegetation the chance to develop again. Part of the Kluisbos is a forest reserve. Here nature is allowed to run its course uncontrollably. Fallen trees remain in place and thus form a shelter for many insects.
