Entraide et Fraternité invite you to join their 180 km bike ride through the stunning region of the Eau d'Heure lakes. The event will support Filipino fishing communities trying to plant mangrove trees. It's all about solidarity!

2 trails to choose from

Participants can either joint a 32 km or a 100 km itinerary. Both will start from the Bike Park in Froidchapelle.

The 32 km one is ideal to enjoy, in a family-friendly atmosphere, the beauty of the lakes by cycling along them.

Those looking for a challenge will go for the 100 km route, offering a more in-depth discovery of the region via the RAVel network: Virelle ake, Platte Taille dam. Thuin, Chimay.


A sport challenge with a spirit of solidarity

Cycling through the stunning forestes of the Fagnes and Ardenne region, the participants can find extra energy in knowing their effort in raising money for the event will support  the Filipino community. Replanting is vital to protect the bodiversity and counterbalance the global warming effects: mangrove trees in swamps, offer a natural habitat, to fish between their roots, and will ultimately help fishermen support their famiy. Heart-warming to say the least.

This event is open to all.
