Belgium is often an undervalued country/region when it comes to cycling. It is mostly known for the regions where the professional cyclists compete for the podium ( Tour of Flanders, La Doyenne, ... you name it ).
In good tradition, we do offer each edition brand new tracks to discover another part of Belgium or close to Belgium. Last year we focussed on the country Luxemburg and for this year we decided to find our way AROUND Luxemburg.
Both the 3 or 4 day option will start and finish in Eupen this year, which gives us the possibility to reach Trier and Saarland as well. People subscribing for the full distance will visit Belgium, Germany, France and say "Hello!" to Luxemburg and The Netherlands.
We will provide several route options with 3 options south of Eupen (300/500/700 km) and a small 'Luske' north of Eupen (125km)
We aim to maximize the amount of unpaved pleasure: not too technical but certainly not boring !
The Grelly '24 is not a stage race, the clock never stops.
Riders must therefore strategically choose how much time they spend on riding, resting, and refueling each day.
Being self-supported means that:
- receiving any form of support from friends or family is not allowed,
- all food, accommodation, repairs, etc., must be purchased from commercial sources,
- drafting is not allowed, except between riders in duo.
Comfort vs. lightweight? Your choice ! Everybody will have his own strategy and each strategy will have it's benefits.
Bivy bag with a limited amount of sleep? Tent and a romantic campfire diner? Or maybe just a spare T-shirt, shorts and a restaurant/hotel of your choice along the way?
Choose whatever fits you most and enjoy your time out there, we are looking forward to hear your story !
