The Green Belt Route is one of the nine iconic cycle routes in Flanders.
The former LF routes have been converted into iconic routes, each with its own theme and route colour.
The Green Belt Route lies entirely in Flemish Brabant and has a hilly character with a few steeper inclines.
The signage of the iconic routes is indicated in two directions.

You can take the name Green Belt quite literally here: cycling in the green belt that encircles Brussels.
It is a mix of panoramic views, undulating landscapes, green valleys, elegant castle estates, fertile agricultural areas and imposing forests.
Although the inclines are sometimes challenging, your efforts will be rewarded many times over with Bruegelian landscapes and views of bustling Brussels.
The traditional breweries and cosy beer cafés are also characteristic. So don’t forget to enjoy yourself and give yourself a reward - a fresh Geuze or Kriek beer from the region.
Along the way you will come across numerous cafés and accommodation that bear the label “Fietsers Welkom”, which means Cyclists Welcome. Great for a break, for lunch or for a good night’s sleep on your bicycle excursion.
The Green Belt Route is divided into 2 routes you can cycle in a day, or for those who want more time to enjoy the many sights along the way, into 3 routes you can cycle in a day. Of course, you can also plan your own route and determine the distances yourself. Here are some suggestions:
