Cycling by Numbers - Finding Your Way!
How does it work?
It’s really easy. The Belgians have a brilliant system for navigating the cycling path network! Main intersections in the bike track network have been assigned a number. You’ll find them on the map we provide you wit
These are examples of the kind of signs you will see on your tour:
At every numbered intersection there’s a big sign with a map of the surroundings where you can see where you are and what options you have, just like on the map that we provide you with.
In Wallonia, there's a RAVeL network, more than 1300km of trails for non-motorized traffic. On the RAVeL signs you always see the nearest cities and the nr. or name of the RAVeL.
For our tours, we sometimes use a combination of cycling-by-numbers and fixed routes, sending you along short stretches of long-distance routes, for example. This works just fine because the two systems tie in nicely. You’ll also find written directions in your Route Pack.
