Guided bicycle tour
From the Maelbeek/ Maalbeek to the Watermaelbeek/ Watermaalbeek: blue water and green nature in the city
This guided bicycle tour will take you from the Maelbeek/Maalbeek valley to the Bois de la Cambre/Ter Kamerenbos, travelling on recently constructed urban bridges for pedestrians and cyclists and skirting ponds and valley landscapes. As you cycle through this part of Brussels, you will learn how the Watermaelbeek/Watermaalbeek valley was formed and restored to its natural, uncovered state and hear about its stormwater basin and the urban parks it crosses before it meets the Woluwe, another Brussels river that has been brought back above ground.
In cooperation with the Commission ornithologique de Watermael- Boitsfort/Commissie voor Ornithologie van Watermaal-Bosvoorde.
