Fantastic route around Chaudfontaine and Pepinster. You cycle from juggernaut to juggernaut on mainly traffic-free roads. Only the climb Sur Steppes was not accessible due to construction works. If you are crazy enough to extend your tour, there are plenty of options in and around Fléron. Highly recommended for those who like to break their calves!

Fantastische route rondom Chaudfontaine en Pepinster. Over hoofdzakelijke autoluwe wegen fiets je van kanjer naar kanjer. Enkel de beklimming Sur Steppes was niet toegankelijk door werkzaamheden. Mocht je zo gek zijn om het rondje nog uit te breiden zijn er tal van opties in en rond Fléron. Aanrader voor de liefhebbers van kuitenbijters!

This is really a sublime route! What a climb! Luckily I didn't have to park a single time, but it was close. Shouldn't have gone any longer because I was completely empty afterwards. Beautiful surroundings, very surprising roads. A must !!!!

Dit is werkelijk een sublieme route! Wat een klimmetjes! Gelukkig geen enkele keer geparkeerd gestaan maar was dicht bij. Had zodoende ook niet echt langer moeten zijn want ik was helemaal leeg erna. Prachtige omgeving, zeer verassende weggetjes. Een must !!!!
