LF 30 Scheldt-Deltaroute - Flanders

The LF 30 is one of the four cross-links in the large circular Flanders Cycle Route. This international route connects the Delta region of Zeeland (NL), from Breskens via Biervliet and Sas van Gent, with the Scheldt in Ghent. From Ghent on it continues to follow the Scheldt to the southwest of East Flanders (Kluisbergen). The route has a total length of 150 km, the Belgian stretch is 100 km long.

Cycle for a brisk rejuvenating cure along the old arms of the Scheldt and through the vibrant center of Ghent.

from north to south:

The LF 30 enters Flanders near Oude Polder. South of Wachtebeke you cycle around the provincial domain of Puyenbroek. Through an open agricultural landscape the route enters, via Laarne, the center of Ghent, together with the LF 5 Flanders Cycle Route. Ghent can be very busy, so enjoy some more peaceful moments in Laarne, in the vicinity of the medieval castle with its towers and moat. Past Ghent you follow the Scheldt upstream. In Zevergem you’ll have to force yourself not to leave the path on the dike in order to explore the trails along the blind arms of the Scheldt. They look mysterious and tempting and promise romantic cycle moments. Past Gavere you reach the Flemish Ardennes. You only get a small foretaste of them, as past Dikkelvenne the route nestles on the Scheldt banks again. In Oudenaarde the route won’t take you to the market place, but this beautiful place which is the perfect setting for its town hall in the Late Brabantine Gothic style is only 300 m off the route. Past Oudenaarde you cycle in the direction of the Kluisberg. The LF 30 ends in Ruien, at the foot of this Flemish hill. Here it meets the LF 6 Flanders Cycle Route. In Ruien there are two possibilities. You can enter the flat West Flanders landscape via Esfcanaffles or brave the Kluisberg and continue on East Flemish soil.

round trip:

The LF 30 is a perfect link for multi-day trips through the provinces West- and East-Flanders.
