The Paddestraat is well known in cycling circles. The cobblestones are always included in the Tour of Flanders. Did you know you are cycling on history here. The street partly follows the route of the Roman road Cologne-Boulogne. Nearby, this road crossed the Roman road from Bavai to Ghent. Because of this corssing of two Roamn roads, a Roman vicus was founded here.

De Paddestraat is een begrip voor wielerliefhebbers en oudheidkundigen. Het is een kasseiweg in Velzeke en is een deel van de Romeinse weg Boulogne-sur-Mer - Velzeke - Keulen. De weg start op het Romeins Plein te Velzeke en loopt door tot Roborst (Zwalm) waar de naam verandert in Borstekouterstraat.
In 1973 deed de Ronde van Vlaanderen deze kasseiweg voor de eerste maal aan.
