Mol is the place to be for cyclists. Let there be no doubt about it. If you want to race across the canals on your mountain bike, or catch your breath on a terrace, you can be sure to be more than catered for here. This region probably has the most amount of cycling kilometres in the whole of Belgium.

The park uses the services of the non-profit organisation Fietsenatelier Mol for bicycle maintance. This is a project for the integration of the long-term unemployed back into employment.
Intensive individual and group supervision is combined with supervised work experience in the bicycle workshop. The outcome is an excellently maintained bicycle!
You can find more information about this project on the bicycle workshop’s website.
