Trails at Hondschoote

The Linen Route / the Blue Rally

The Linen Route is a cycling circuit organized by the Tourist Office, in partnership with linen shears and local associations, to highlight and explain the culture and the different uses of linen. It is practiced throughout the summer season but without the activities of the Blue Rally

The route of this circuit changes each year depending on the location of the flax fields and generally covers around forty kilometres.

To launch the flax route, the Blue Rally is organized at the beginning of June, when flax is adorned with its pretty little blue flowers. On this occasion, various activities and games are scheduled throughout the course.
