From the Maison du Pays des Collines awaits a superb 22-km bike ride, sure to decide challenge lovers: inclines included.

Undulating hills surround the village of Ellezelles, which sweet countryside you are about to cycle through.

The beginning of this trail uses the RAVel. The former railway Line #87 linked Braine-le-Comte and Tournai. It would meet Line #82 along the way, nicknamed « Mijnwerkerspad », the miners' way. A little after node 80, the trail goes through the agricultural fields of the region: the main harvest here is sugar beets.

Near Saint-Sauveur, you will take narrow paths, meandering through a beautiful forest, going up and down little hills. A real pleasure, the nodes network making it easy to find your way.
