WaWa (Wavre-Waterloo) food lovers’ trip

- This route is not a loop! The starting point is therefore not linked to the end point.
- Take note of the producers’ opening times or make an appointment.
Big Bang Route
The 75 km long round trip cycle route between the twin cities of Leuven and Louvain-la-Neuve is dedicated to the Big Bang and its founder, Georges Lemaître. The tour starts at the Lemaître statue in one of the two cities, brings you to the statue of Lemaître in the other city and returns via another way. Returning can also be done by train. The route will take you through the Meerdaal forest, meandering its way past the myriad lovely spots punctuating the rural Walloon Brabant landscape. The terrain is full of rolling hills, so get ready to tackle a few steep slopes. At a number of places, the possibility exists to choose a more gentle, family-type of route or a MTB route.
The round trip is mapped out through cycle nodes.
When starting in Leuven the sequence is:
10 (Leuven) - 74 - 75 - 13 - 2 - 1 - 79 - 80 - 40 - 41 - 42 - 43 - 44 - 45 - 50 - 49 - 56 - 57 - 75 - 76 - 89 - 95 - 67 (Louvain-La-Neuve) - 95 - 89 - 76 - 75 - 57 - 56 - 49 - 50 - 45 - 44 - 43 - 42 - 41 - 40 - 80 - 79 - 78 - 82 - 76 - 70 - 75 - 74 - 10 (Leuven)
There are two MBTEr alternatives:
Between node 40 and 49: 40 - 39 - 37 - 47 - 49
Between node 76 and 44: 76 - 77 - 78 - 55 - 54 - 51 - 52 - 44
Along the family-type route, there are eight places to stop for a rest. Each of these has been marked with a QR code. Scan the code to discover facts about Georges Lemaître, the Big Bang, how our Universe has evolved and what the future will bring.

A BEAUTIFUL ESCAPE!
Through the Flemish and Walloon Brabant provinces, an enchanting bicycle route joins Felix and Folon.
“Free spirits” offers a unique route between two monographic museums, located a dozen kilometers from each other, on the outskirts of Brussels, one in Drogenbos dedicated to the painter-farmer Felix De Boeck and the other in La Hulpe designed by Jean-Michel Folon. Both artists were free spirits of their time. Belonging to different generations, they crossed the 20th century and left their mark on it. Beyond their age, their culture and their background, they share a lot in common: a taste for freedom, an attachment to nature and a profound humanism.
In their lives and in their art, they have stood for values that are still relevant today, in particular a profound respect for nature and human rights. The FeliXart Museum and the Fondation Folon bring these artistic and humanistic legacies to life.
The project also encourages soft mobility and offers a new bicycle route to discover these two museums. The visitor’s guide, enriched with stories by the two artists, offers you the keys to the reading and invites you to discover more…
