- Mountain bike ride
A 20-km bike ride combining history and archaeology in the Walloon region of Picardy, a beautiful part in Eastern Hainaut.
A journey through time awaits: from the Roman times at the Archéosite d'Aubechies to the Renaissance at the château de Beloeil. You will travel through Aubechies, one of the prettiest villages in Wallonia with its adorable Romanesque church and the Saint-Géry tavern. Its timeless architecture is typical of the region.
The node network keeps you away from major roads - all the better! Cycling along peaceful countryside roads, you will read the French gardens of the Château de Beloeil, which complete each other beautifully. The estate is by the canal of Blaton-Ath, which we will follow all the way to Huissignies. There you can visit the Musée de la Vie Rurale.
