Ypres Salient

The Ypres Salient was created at the end of October 1914. An arc-shaped front formed itself around Ypres. Both armies dug in and fought from a continuous system of trenches and mineshafts. The 'Little Ypres Salient' remained virtually unchanged from May 1915 to August 1917. A half million soldiers of over 50 different nationalities died there. Because of this, “the Salient” became one of the most notorious places along the Western front. This cycling route takes you along the front line around Ypres.
