Liege Amsterdam

Going into the final fase of the creation of a Le Coffee Ride Bikepacking lite range, late summer was ideal for a 3 day bike travel adventure.

We set of from Liège ( Visé ) towards Amsterdam passing Antwerp and the beautiful Zeeland region South West of the Netherlands.

Experiencing bike travel and making a final test for our prototype frame and saddle bags that are planned for production before the end of this year.

Stage 1 Visé ( Liège ) – Grobbedonk ( Antwerp ) : 125 km

Expect rolling roads and a negatif elevation as you are riding from Est towards the coast. Several cafés , greenfields in Limbourg and nice things to see along the way !
