● A place where you can cycle through the water.

The next time you’re getting a little hot riding your bicycle, think of what it would be like to cycle through a lake. Well, in Belgium, it’s possible. They built a bike path that cuts right through a small lake in the De Wijers nature reserve near Bokrijk.

Riding through it looks like it would be a lot of fun. The path provide cyclists with an interesting perspective of the surrounding water as well as an eye-level view of any wildlife on the lake. The bike path has won at least two awards for landscape architecture.

This Youtube video will give you a good idea of what it’s like to cycle through this path, and there’s more information about the area on the tourism website for the Limburg region of Belgium (where it is also possible to cycle through a forest at the tree tops).
