Cycle route planner: cycling from A to B


The honeycomb system makes it easier to plan the route and offers the leisurely cycle tourer more or less unlimited possibilities. The basis of the system is the Velotour leisurely cycle tour map in East Belgium.

With a click on the desired node on the map, the system automatically calculates your cycle tour in the network of routes. Try it yourself! It's child's play! After that, just write down the numbers of the nodes you have clicked in the right order, and you can start your cycle tour from the departure point. We recommend you to take the map of the network with you. Alternatively, you can download the route to a GPS device or transfer it to a smartphone thanks to the 'GO Ostbelgien' app. A printout of the tour is also possible.
