Reserved for non-motorised users, the Réseau Autonome des Voies Lentes (RAVeL) [Autonomous Network of Slow Lanes] relies mainly on the layout of generally very low-gradient former railway tracks and towpaths. The RAVeL is the backbone of all roadways dedicated to soft mobility and far and wide roaming. Hainaut Province boasts 400 km of such roadways, road sections included. Major regional and long distance international itineraries, which will soon be fully signposted, are being added to the RAVeL network. Itineraries n°1, n°2, n°3, n°4, n°6, n°8 and Eurocycling routes n°3 and n°5 cross Hainaut from East to West and North to South and help create major connected routes on a regional and European scale for itinerant tourists. More RAVeL means more pleasure! Hainaut Province.
