If impressionist art and cycling are your thing, the Emile Claus Bicycle Tour will be your thing. A free map with brochure is available for free at the Ghent Museum of Fine Arts. The 55 km tour shows cyclists the places where this famous Belgian impressionist painter lived and worked. At a few places, you can even compare the actual landscape with an image of the painted version, roughly 100 years older. The tour leads you through the fantastic landscape of the Golden River Leie towards Deinze, Ooidonk with it's castle and Machelen with it's Roger Raveelmuseum.
