Sven Nys Cycling Route

A cyclo-cross athlete will not get into shape by just training in the field. Athletes like Sven Nys spend much of their training time on the road in order to increase their endurance levels. As it turns out, Sven lived and trained in a beautiful region – Hageland! Sven Nys has drawn up a 93-km road loop that takes hardy cyclists past his favourite training tracks. You’ll ride through the loveliest landscapes in Hageland, traverse pleasant villages, and discover Hageland’s vineyards. Be prepared for a few serious calf-killers. Feel free to take a break from time to time, especially when you come across all those special places of interest.
