This ride is categorised as an easy ride, but I must admit that it has a few climbs in it, that might make some people say it is maybe more of a medium type of ride. Well, only for you to decide.

The starting point is in Gronsveld and is near a nice parking spot where you can leave your car. Within the first kilometer from the start there is a short technical climb that unfortunately is needed to get you on to the nice gravel roads on top of Riesenberg / Kleinberg. After this the remaining route is much easier and excellent suited to gravel bikes.

As I said, there is a long double climb close to Gulpen that is part of this route. At the foot of the Gulperberg the route goes left and takes you on to a 1km long climb with a 5% average gradient. After this there is a short 500m downhill to catch your breath again, to be followed by a 1.5km climb of around 6% gradient. A little further down this route, you’ll be presented with a long downhill that has a little rocky start, followed by the last real climb in this route that goes into double digits for a short part.

Have fun and let me know what you think of this route.

Valkenburg – Gulpen – Banholt

I tried to make this route as flat as possible, but we’re in the South of Limburg and we’re famous for our hills, so I had to make some exceptions to keep the route a gravel route.

Wijnandsrade – Schimmert

This route takes you to a less explored region north of Valkenburg, not the first place gravel riders will go to when in Valkenburg, but certainly a region that offers great gravel tracks and is a bit easier than south of Valkenburg.
