Offroad course Balenberg


The experience center explains the theory, but you should really try putting it into practice outside. Different courses, constructed against the slopes of the Balenberg, do credit to the four cycling disciplines.

Try the famous Grand Prix Sven Nys cyclo-cross track, where Belgium’s best cyclo-crossers compete every year on New Year’s Day. A tough, single-track mountain bike course winds between the trees. Try your tricks on the BMX freestyle track or, for daredevils, on the rock garden and dirt line. And young kids can cut loose on the pump track. Sounds too challenging? It doesn’t have to be. Even without experience or lots of lung capacity, there are plenty of possibilities. And to top things off… all these courses are accessible all year round for free. A beautiful footpath winds through the site for those who prefer something calmer and want to enjoy the natural beauty.
