My favorite place in the Ardennes to ride a bike. Compared to other areas like the surroundings of Aywaille or Stavelot, it is quieter, less affected by aggressive tourism (except maybe near Durbuy), and even greener.

And it doesn't lack hard climbs either, starting with Haussire in La Roche and Saint-Roch in Houffalize.

The only downside is the overall condition of the roads, which is still in need of improvement. But this is the case almost everywhere in Belgium...

Mon endroit préféré des Ardennes pour faire du vélo. Par rapport à d'autres régions comme les alentours d'Aywaille ou de Stavelot, elle est plus tranquille, moins atteinte par le tourisme agressif (sauf peut-être à proximité de Durbuy), et encore plus verdoyante.

Et elle ne manque pas non plus d'ascensions corsées, à commencer par Haussire à La Roche et Saint-Roch à Houffalize.

Le seul bémol est l'état global des routes, encore très perfectible. Mais c'est le cas presque partout en Belgique…
