My daily training route while in Belgium. You can race solo or in a small peloton, access to MTB trails everywhere, or if you continue to Oudenaarde you can try some of the "Hellingen" such as the Edelare, the Volkegem.I agree that some of the cyclists can pass agressively fast, but speed rails slow them down. Even an ideal place for a walk, birdwatching, or just a picnic. No places where you can have a drink, so be prepared if you take on a trail.

When I lived in Belgium, I've done this stretch several times. Sometimes all of it (about 60 miles). Sometimes only half of it, depending on the weather and my mood. There's only one disadvantage. The distance from the center of Ghent to the starting point in Zwijnaarde is about 5 miles. In the morning, that's never a problem, but when cycling back in the evening, it's always tough. So therefore, it's no bad idea to break your cycling tour into two parts, with an overnighting in Oudenaarde. A small town town where there's actually a lot to see. What I like most about cycling along the 'Scheldevalleiroute' is the constantly changing landscape. The more south you go, the more hilly it becomes. But no panic, you don't have to climb the hills! One moment, you cycle along the royal towpaths of the majestic Scheldt. Royal does mean here 3 meters broad! On other parts, you leave the actual river and you're discovering old cut-off meanders where herons and fishermen compete for a fresh fish.
