Pleasant route, especially with the fantastic weather of last Sunday: dry, fresh but full sun. You are fast in nature, with a lot of forest. The beginning is pretty tough. First 3km seldom drops below the 10% increase. After which it gradually increases to km 6. Afterwards more variety between valleys and climbs. Both climbs and descents are sometimes very steep (+ 23% to -25%). The course is certainly not technical, although you have to be careful with your speed in the descents. The course is indicated. Although I did not find the first arrows back. After about 1 km they are there. Afterwards no signs missed, but they are sometimes almost completely bleached by the sun. The gpx file is perfect.

Very nice route. It starts out with 6 km near constant climb, with an average grade of 6%. Some of it quite technical with fallen leaves on top of rocks. So you have to earn your downhills, but they are are very nice. Very beautiful setting and mostly off-road. I can't wait to go again.

Beautiful route, the beginning is spicy heavy. Starting next to the church you get a climb of a few kilometers for the pick. First on asphalt, then piece of wood, and again asphalt. Then you are definitely in nature. Climbing is rewarded with a great long descent with high speeds and beautiful nature. Then climb again and 2 more downhill runs. Very nice route, physically challenging as well, the downhill runs are by no means underestimated. Top route.

A bit of rain in the morning and the night before but dry paths overall. Constant climb at the beginning so you will warm up quickly. 80% off-road. The route has a bit of everything single trails, forest paths, 1 or 2 technical descents and streams crossings. I had to walk one short climb coz it was too tough due to logging activity, so soil was too soft and stuck to the tyres making them quite heavy. So far the best XC loop I have ridden in Les Ardennes.
