Valkenburg – 55km – 530hm

Searching for an easy route but still needing some challenges? This might be the one for you as it is a rather short route but has some parts that are a little more demanding. This route starts and ends at Fixed Gear Coffee, the place to be in this area for great coffee and cake. From there the route first takes you out of the city of Valkenburg and for this we’d have to climb

2nd Offgrid Gravel Series Limburg

Since then I started riding my bike more often and joined in some organised road rides. Then
