The Blauwe lus Ichtegem (blue loop from Ichtegem) is a mountainbike trail through this village dedicated tot cyclism. You'll notice this, passing the house of Richard Depoorter, one of the greatest in cyclism from Ichtegem and the monument made by Patrick Steen in corten steel "Ode aan de Vlaamsche Leeuwen" (Ode to Flemish Lions, referring to the Flandriens, the Flemish cyclists). You'll pass also monuments like the Lookhuisstraat, a cobblestone street which is classified and the castles of Lantonnois- van Rode, Moerbeek and Rozendaal.

The route is mainly flat, but there is a little bite at the end with the ascension of the Ruidenberg, a questa, part of the cuesta of Wijnendale.
