Bicycle ride : "The Battle of the Bulge"
This summer, the Bastogne War Museum and the Administration of Bastogne register themselves in the theme year "Wallonia by bicycle" by proposing three history courses of the steps of the terrible battle that took place in winter 1944-45.
"Bicycle creates varied links between people, it enables meetings." Pierre Assouline didn't know how right he was. The Tourist Office goes further and it proposes meetings with History in partnership with the Bastogne War Museum... and not whatever history! The one of the Battle of the Bulge. Both bicycle amateurs and experienced riders will be plunged 72 years in the past through three new tracks. These courses are long from five km for the amateurs up to twenty km for the most experienced ones. There is also a midway ten-km-long course.
The starting point is the Place Mc Auliffe square. The Tourist Office puts several MTB at the disposal of people who want to take part to this and also roadbooks of 28 pages that give information about the course to follow.
Price for adults: 24€ - Children: 12€ (MTB rent for 1/2 day + admission in the museum).
Three "memory" bicycle courses plunge you in the story of the Battle of the Bulge.

A look on bicycle in art and in history.
Bicycle has always been considered as a symbol of freedom and of autonomy since it was invented and it is still nowadays. The current practice of cyclism is linked to a better quality of environment and it has also become the symbol of a life quality. A great number of artists do also share this infatuation for bicycle. We propose you a subjective look on bicycle in the fields of history, design, and contemporary art.
