This route takes you to some famous landmarks of World War I, like the Yser Tower and the Dodengang, but also of the Flander's Fields of today, full of crop. It passes by the Yser, crossing it at the Yser Tower and the Tervaetebrug, but also the peaceful Handzamevaart (except an occasional kayak) by passing the Einsdijk (which can be a bit muddy when it rains) and the Boterdijk.

It is quite similar to the Green Loop, but extends to the village of Koekelare, more precisely Bovekerke.

The region is quite flat, those who love the "mountain" in "mountainbike" should go elsewhere. 36% offroad.
