ANTWERP TO NOORDERKEMPEN

In the north of Antwerp you can find an area called the 'Noorderkempen'. The road takes you from the outskirts of Antwerp (Schoten) to Hoogstraten which is located right next to the border with Holland. Famous for the farms and fields, but also is it the favourite training ground for some very famous Pro cyclists. Due to the open fields and flatness it is a good area to work on your power output. These roads are almost car free ... so you can go as fast as you can, or have a fight with the wind. This ride was filmed on a beautiful but cold March evening.
