BIKE RIDE: Dimanche à vélo (Sundays by bike) 

Dimanche à vélo

The Grand Hospice is a remarkable piece of heritage and while they wait for renovation works to begin, the site is opening its doors to all kinds of social and cultural projects. Every last Sunday of the month, the Grand Hospice will be the starting and finishing point of a lovely bike ride. This Sunday, Cactus - Brussels by Bike takes us to the former Boitsfort hippodrome. The beautifully restored buildings of this lively recreational park will catapult you back to the time when this was the venue of choice for the beau monde of Brussels!
