Itinerary description

A nice cycling trail from the train station in Nivelles to the train station in Courcelles (which are on the same Brussels-Charleroi railway line).

The road is mainly asphalted, and follows an old railway track (ravel from Nivelles to Arquennes), and then goes along the canals (from Arquennes to Courcelles). In Seneffe you can see the castle (château/domaine).

The road is pretty flat and easy to follow. Just in Arquennes after the bridge over the canal the ravel stops suddenly (with a warning that it is private property), so we followed the way along the old Brussels-Charleroi canal.
