Brussels and bicycles: guided tours around the 2019 Tour de France

To celebrate the Grand Départ of the Tour de France in Brussels, discover the capital with our selection of guided bicycle tours.

With itineraries, bike rental, guided tours and experiences with a Greeter, Brussels offers you many two-wheeled possibilities to explore the city. While the Grand Départ du Tour de France puts sports cycling in the spotlight, Brussels will make you move differently! Have you got your bike ready?

  • The Brussels Stage of the 2019 Tour de France on an electric bike (+-30km in total) 

    The time trial stage in Brussels, a 28km loop, covers the most sumptuous avenues and crosses the capital's most beautiful parks. On our electrically assisted bicycles, we follow the same route that the Tour de France riders will take and discover Brussels during cultural breaks.

  • Eddy Merckx and Cycling in Brussels (25km) 

    This guided tour will also be an opportunity to celebrate one of the most famous cyclists in the world, Eddy Merckx, winner of the Tour de France five times. From his childhood in Woluwé-Saint-Pierre to his many victories, discover the "Cannibal's" journey as you pedal.

  • Greeters 

    Greeters are residents who introduce tourists to their city or neighbourhood in an original, personal and welcoming way. Some of them offer bike rides that take you to their favorite places. This is the case with Luc, for example:

    "Luc is sporty and uses his bike for all his trips. A Brussels resident who's passionate about his city, he has joined the Greeters network as a volunteer to help visitors discover the capital through authentic, unusual and tailor-made experiences. He likes to share the Art Nouveau and Art Deco treasures of the Ambiorix and Marie-Louise squares and pass through Leopold Park, a wonderful green setting in the heart of the European Quarter."
