2018 During my bike trip saw I this the Hotel in Hoeke a small village with 200 habitants, pleasant bike area

The straight and leafy towpath along the Damse Vaart forms an excellent route for carefree and safe cycling. In good weather they pass with hundreds. Many of them stop at the large terrace of "Hotel Welkom".
On the entire route between Bruges and Sluis this is the only occasion where the patron so emphatically appreciates the bikes. With a posh bicycle parking, with a range of cycling maps and brochures and with bicycle rental for the hotel guests. "We have been working on cycling tourism for a quarter of a century. Previously we already had the permanent signposted “Riante Polderroute” and the Flanders Cycle Route. With the arrival of bicycle nodes, the number of cyclists has increased. Recently we notice that, for example, more and more Walloons and French people come cycling along here, "says son Dieter, certified sommelier and the next generation.

I hope that you enjoy it
