Start in Geraardsbergen, home of the 'mattentaart'. Your start and ending point is the MattentaartAtelier. Stock up here to keep you going on the way, or end your ride with a mattentaart with a coffee or tea at the adjoining house De Erfzonde. The culinary pride of Geraardsbergen - a combination of milk, puff pastry and almonds - has been recognised as a European regional product thanks to its unique preparation method. Every first Sunday of August, Geraardsbergen still celebrates the 'Day of the Mattentaart'.
