With over 1000 m of elevation, this tour offers everything a serious mountain biker could want. The East Belgian Loop also features some of the best mountain biking spots in the region.
This extensive tour runs over some of the 18 circuits and was created in cooperation with the Belgian mountain biking magazine O2Bikers. It has now become a true "classic" and connects the mountain biking strongholds of Bütgenbach, Malmedy, St Vith and Reuland Castle, covering no less than 2,650 metres in positive altitude change over a distance of 190 km. Divided into three loops, you can ride the tour either in a circuit or in two, three or more stages.
One particular highlight is the area around Reinhardstein Castle. When your day of hard riding is done, you can eat in Malmedy or Bütgenbach.
