Where will

Eddy Merckx

take you?

Bicycle racer

Eddy Merckx (born 17th June 1945) is one of the most famous cyclists Belgium has ever known.

After his cycling career, he founded the bicycle company that bears his name. With 525 cycling victories to his name, sports journalists call him the best cyclist of all time. And guess what was one of his favourite training areas? Brussels, of course.

“I love Brussels for the diversity of the city, the greenery and the forests. My roots are here. And when I was younger, my regular cycling routes took me through and around Brussels.”
