Ride the Flemish Classics. Eat the Flemish classics.

Cycling in Flanders_Energy gels_Stand

Flanders is famous for its delicious Belgian fries, often accompanied by a hearty beef stew. Stoofvlees-friet, which is mouth-wateringly good. Especially after a bike ride on the bergs and cobbles of Flanders. We realised that not everyone has experienced these delights. This is why we created the perfect synergy: energy gels inspired by our top classic Flemish dish: stoofvlees-friet!

We must admit something though, nothing beats the real deal. Therefore, you must visit Flanders in 2024. Conquer the legendary bergs and cobbles, such as the Paterberg, the Muur van Geraardsbergen or the Oude Kwaremont. Afterwards you can treat yourself to a heart-warming plate of Flemish beef stew and Belgian Fries. Tip: it tastes even better accompanied by of our Belgian beers.

Try the Flemish Classics, both of them

Where you can try these? Everywhere! No, seriously: Flemish beef stew and fries is one of our dishes that is served in restaurants, 'brasseries' and cafés throughout Flanders. It's a classic, along with vol-au-vent, mussels and shrimp-filled tomatoes.

We happily give three recommendations that are based on the routes below: Taverne 't Hemelrijck on the prime location of the Muur van Geraardsbergen, Casino in Kemmel and Peloton Café in Oudenaarde.

Curious about our energy gels?

We were too, so we actually made them in a limited edition!
