West-Flanders - Poperinge

POProute (35 km)


The cycling route follows the tracks of the First World War behind the front. The first stop after hell, where soldiers washed off the mud and blood, healed their wounds or died from them. Poperinge, or POP as the British used to call it, was flooded with foreign troops for four long years. They came to rest for a few days in POP, close to the people, or to stand trial for their failures in the business of war.
