'Cycling through the Heathland’ takes you through the Hoge Kempen National Park. Vast pine forests alternate with endless heathland landscapes. At 'Cycling through the Heathland’ you get this nature presented on a tray through the new connection between cycling nodes 550 and 551. You cycle across the Mechelse Heide, which with 700 hectares is one of the largest heathland areas in Flanders. The top experience on this route is undoubtedly the almost 300 meter long wooden bicycle bridge, a beacon in the landscape. On top of the bicycle bridge you get a wide view of the natural environment.
