Zeebrugge to 'south of Brussels'

Hi, I'm planning on a coast to coast from Zeebrugge to Narbonne. I am planning on following this...
http://www.cyclingeurope.nl/cycling/rou ... /index.php
...which I am hoping to connect with somewhere south of Brussels.

Zeebrugge to Ghent seems OK - there's a canal path I think. But does anyone have experience of the best way to cycle from Ghent around the south of Brussels to link up, maybe around Namur? I'll need a campsite in the Ghent area too.

Cheers

Will

You can cycle from Ghent to Brussels mostly on canal path, too.

Old Schelde to Melle, and Schelde to Wintam, both, partly on road and partly on river/canalside path, then Willebroek Canal to Brussels.

You can then take the Charleroi canal south from Brussels.

https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mi ... 8,4.938354 has camping places in Belgium

and http://www.fietsroute.org/Long-Distanceroutes-LF.php or http://www.gamber.net/cyclebel/index.htm for waterways routes.


Have fun :)

South From Brussels there is also the RAVeL network of paths.
