The 'Nuit du RAVeL', a two-day bike excursion in Wallonia21/06/2017

On 20 July, the second edition of the Nuit du RAVeL will take place. This year, we will be celebrating the centenary of the 'Canal du Centre', so we couldn't have chosen a better location!  

After the success of Namur in 2016, it's the turn of the Central region to welcome this stage of the Beau Vélo de Ravel. The start of the circuit will kick off at 7.00pm at La Louvière, at the foot of the Strepy-Thieu lift, ending no less than 70 metres away. With family or friends, set off along the RAVeL which follows the Canal du Centre, discover its landscapes and heritage. Enjoy a 110km-long nocturnal and gastronomic cycle trip in magnificent surroundings, right in the heart of Hainaut province.  Experience the "Beau Vélo de RAVeL" trip with gastronomic and festive stages, including the free concert of Grand Jojo, who already attended the previous edition in Namur, and who will round off the first day.

Gastronomy will therefore be on display as part of the tourist theme this year: Gastronomic Wallonia. Thanks to the chefs who will be in attendance over the two days, come and discover Wallonia's gastronomic heritage, the region's producers and local produce. Upon returning, breakfast will be offered to all participants.
