Finally: Spring has sprung and we had the first weekend with lots of sun and great cycling conditions. So we decided to take a spontaneous cycling trip to the Ardennes in Belgium.
The Ardennes offer a wide range of bike and hiking trails for all fitness levels, like the Ardennes-Eifel trail or the Vennbahn cycle path across East Belgium. No matter if you prefer road cycling, gravel bikes, MTB touring or enjoying a light hike – the area offers something for everyone.
To have a base for the weekend, we picked a beautiful AirBnB in Stoumont and started to explore from there. Having a stop at Le Coffee Ride was on top of our list and so we made a reservation in advance for their weekly BBQ night. After a long day of cycling there's just nothing better than a rich dinner with friends. (To make a reservation simply visit the Le Coffee Ridewebsite. During the day the cafe offers of great specialty coffee, cakes and small snacks... and the Rosé is also not bad.
Speaking of #dontdrinkandride: Le Coffee Ride is also a B&B. They can host up to 26 people and have two-, three- and four-bedrooms available.
In need of new riding apparel: Le Coffee Ride developed a range for Men and Women featuring the latest technical fabrics combined with a modern and stylish design and is available online and in the shop.
