By bike - Green route in a black country
2h30
 

This cross-border bike ride, off the beaten track, reveals that our post-industrial regions are also large nature reserves. Workers villages and remains are a reminder however that industry once ruled here.

A route between two regions, halfway between Belgium and France, invites you to cross fields and forests, cutting across the border. Some industrials housing estates, headgear structures and the remains of the Newcomen fire pump, remind you of the fact that industry once was overwhelming here. Since then, nature has fully asserted its rights : subsidence lakes have been created and they shelter true ecological resources. This trip off the beaten track will show you that our postindustrial territories are also great nature reserves.
