On this western section of 150km, the North Sea Wind follows you all the way along a flat route from Vleteren to Bruges. The route runs through vast polders, while flirting with the Flemish coast. Let the Flanders Cycle Route lead you through this flat landscape, where cycling is a delightful experience. In the Westhoek you land in the ‘City of Butter’, Diksmuide with its IJzer Tower. This 84m high peace monument not only accommodates a museum on War, Peace and Flemish emancipation, it also offers a marvelous view over the Westhoek. After leaving Diksmuide, the route follows the Trench of Death, the last relic of the Belgian First World War front line. Through an open rural landscape and passing through the province town of Veurne, the route leads you to the Flemish coast. In Nieuwpoort, you can visit the King Albert Monument, and further on, the Flanders Cycle Route also goes past Oostende, the ‘City by the Sea’. Through vast polders and the Zwin region you reach the small medieval town Damme. This book town will certainly charm you, and maybe even inspire you.
