Here in the Brabant village of Eersel, about two hundred years ago, people did not have much money. Yet they were happy and content. Except for one man. He was alone. Without wife, children and friends. That wasn't surprising. Because this man only had one dream: to become rich... This 30-kilometre cycle route over the junctions leads you along the exciting story.

In the Kempen, friends and family liked to get together in the evenings. Then they told each other scary stories. The story of the 'Glowy One' was especially fond of being told. This burning ghostly apparition appeared everywhere in the area. Here he left his traces, including blackened footprints that can still be found everywhere... De Gloeiige was once a stately landlord of Eersel. But because of his greed, he is now under a curse. Find out why the Glowing One was cursed. And where you can bump into him...
