The Poggio mountain bike route starts in Koekelare and takes you via Ichtegem, Gistel and Diksmuide back to Koekelare. Through the village centre and the Oosthof park, you ride to the beautiful, flat land of the boroughs Zande, De Mokker and Bovekerke. Along old field roads and unpaved tracks you discover the starting Polders.

As a bonus follows a firm journey through Koekelare forest. The name 'Poggio' references the local mountain bike club and the Koekelare mount called the 'Poggio' by the cycling environment.

The route provides connection to the existing mountain bike routes of Diksmuide and Ichtegem.


Museums open by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays
