On Wednesday, September 14, 2022, Club for Sport and Culture Lierde organized a Midweek Tour for the seventeenth time in their beautiful rural municipality. The course designers again gave the best of themselves and managed to charm the walkers with three beautiful loops.
With a Midweek tour, the route always consists of three different loops. The walker then has the choice of which loop to do or which combination to make. Loop1 was 5,800km, loop2 was 6,670km and could be shortened to 4,740km, loop3 was 8,900km and could be shortened to 6,270km. By combining these loops one could do 10.52km, 11.01km, 12.07km, 12.47km, 14.70km, 15.57km, 16.81km and 21.37km,
Upon arrival of the hikers, soaked or not, we heard nothing but very positive criticism. The various courses that the course designers mapped out were apparently appreciated by everyone. Most people walked on rural roads and (rediscovered) paths with some surprising landscapes and beautiful pieces of nature.
