In April 2016 'Cycling through Water' opened, an inspiring cycling trail through a pond of the De Wijers nature reserve in Bokrijk-Genk. Since the opening, already 500.000 cyclists have visited the cycling trail.
The bike trail through water leads cyclists through a 212 meters long and three meters wide concrete path with water at eye level on both sides. Swans and other waterfowl float on the edge and watch the cyclists curiously. Since its opening, the interest in this special bike trail has been huge. An average of 800 visitors per day explore this unforgettable part of the Limburg cycling route network. With highs on Saturday and Sunday and no less than 5.000 cyclists on top days.
