Book a 2019 bike tour and see the most iconic Western European sites of World War I.


Freewheel Holidays offers a brand-new itinerary, which takes travelers across some of the most interesting and poignant spots in history, over the course of eight days. The brand takes care of all the finer details, so all you have to do is show up, cycle, sightsee and have a great time.


The itinerary is filled with unique experiences the history and war buff can appreciate. In Bruges, see the city’s architecture, recently restored after World War I’s devastation; you can still find medieval remnants, but the ravages of war are un-missable. Cycle past beautiful nature reserves, and picturesque settings once the site of tumultuous battles. Scenery reveals castles and country estates, thick forestry and fascinating cultures. In Menen, visit museums and war cemeteries. In Lijssenthoek, see British field hospitals and unmarked graves.


Of course, non-war and history buffs will have fun, too. There are plenty of stops at spots of cultural significance and more general museums that cater to all tastes. Foodie experiences along the way give travelers a chance to experience some of Belgium’s finest beers and culinary offerings.


Each day, you can expect to cycle about 30 miles. The itinerary departs every Saturday in 2019, June 4–Sept. 21, so you have plenty of time to book. It starts at £789 per person, and the cost includes your hotel stays, bike rentals, breakfasts, route information and more.
