The Vesdre Valley Flanks

We had to go back !
In this second ride starting from our home town Visé we went down to Liege following the bike lane next to ‘ La Meuse ‘ before leaving the ‘ Ourthe ‘ valley crossing Embourg down to Chaudfontaine where the real fun began.

Bike haven can be close to home sometimes if you search for it, switchbacks, old abandon buildings, steep climbs, stuning views going down in the valley, we got it all…
One of our favorite downhills offering stuning views is the ‘ Thier de Hansez ‘ going from Hansez down to Nessonvaux.
We also went up for the first time ‘ Rue sur Steppes ‘ from Prayon up to Andoumont after reading an article that said it was one of Tom Doumoulin his favorite climbs !

In the second part we went down from Tancrémont into a unique field road crossing the ‘ Mont Theux ‘ climb toward Jevoumont. A unique ‘ corniche ‘ road with open views on the Hautes Fagnes flanks !

Below are some pictures and a gpx you can check out if you feel like exploring the area.
Will be sharing new GPX routes in our RIDE section for coming summer soon going on these same roads starting from the café.

Will be doing some gravel around Liege next week !
