We cycle up north towards Bilzen. The ascents here are still pretty tough. On the way, we pass some entrance gates to the Hoge Kempen National Park. Via the centre of Genk we arrive in Bokrijk, where we finish our route at the unique cycling experience 'Cycling through Water'.
For our last stage, we crawl in the saddle in the Lommel Sahara. After a good bit of cycling, the Beringen slag heaps announce the impressive mining site be-MINE. We continue our tour on the towpath along the Albert Canal heading to the finish line: the Herkenrode Abbey Site in Hasselt.
