Did you know that the RAVeL network is made up of no less than 45 itineraries? What's more, these greenways are progressively linked up to each other to give cyclists and bicycle tourists 9 regional and 4 international itineraries that cover the whole Walloon region.


Away from the dangers of traffic, this network guarantees safe, comfortable and gentle conditions to best discover Wallonia, its cities, its countryside and its preserved natural spaces.


Discover the RAVeL network all over Wallonia

Cycle along converted railway lines as you travel through our countryside, forests or nature parks, past our rivers and castles, in our most beautiful villages and in the heart of our towns and cities.
