Because major works are taking place on the Rond Plein, the monument was moved to the Parikeberg in February 2021 by special transport.
Yesterday the monument was solemnly unveiled by Senate President Stephanie D’Hose who was allowed to open a bicycle lock with a key in the presence of Marc Carlier and mayor Stefaan Devleeschouwer. Beforehand, the former riders Peter Van Petegem and Ferdi Van Den Haute also came to take a look. Then the folk festival could erupt with pure entertainment with a drink, a snack, a bouncy castle, walking musicians From The Klakke and pure stage work with Goosething. The closing was performed by Jacob Surdiacourt on the keyboard inside the Bicycle Monument.
