Q & A
What would you have changed?
Spending more time in Brugge would have been really nice! The city has much more to offer than what you can see on two days.
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Only underestimating the time needed to get to the coast. But since we don't bicycle on a regular basis, this might not be a problem for you.
How was the food?
We did have some one-night stops in some small villages not mentioned in the destinations. There is an absolutely amazing - accordingly more expensive than usually - restaurant near Maldegem called Artisan.
What tips would you give a friend?
The Dutch language is somehow pretty fun. Try learning a couple of words, even if it's just a few.
Depending on where you stay, bring some mosquito repellant - just in case. At one riding center we slept, they were annoying, and they were a lot.
We mainly stayed at youth hostels in Brugge and Gent and riding stables for the in between stops. Worked pretty well.
