Day 3: Genk, Belgium - Maastricht, Netherlands, 32 mi. (52 km)
From nature to culture, it is a leafy ride to the town of Bilzen, Belgium and neighboring Alden Biezen castle. Subsequently, quiet country lanes will take you up and down to Kanne, Belgium, a pretty Flemish village with white and marlstone houses. Your destination is the elegant city of Maastricht, Netherlands. Here, there is something from all tastes including shops, museums, city walks, and outdoor cafes in Vrijthof square.

Day 4: Maastricht, Netherlands - Eupen, Belgium, 40 mi. (64 km)
As you leave the city, follow the River Meuse south to the picturesque village of Eijsden, Netherlands. After crossing the border you will enter the Flemish Voer region, a paradise of unspoiled pastoral splendor. You will climb to 300 meters N.A.P. enjoying great vistas of the beautiful landscape. The Abbey of Val Dieu is today’s cultural highlight. Stay the night in the German speaking small town of Eupen.

Day 5: Eupen, Belgium - Monschau, Germany, 20 mi. (32 km)
Today's route contains some hills, however today will have less kilometers and the High Fens offers beautiful natural scenery. The gradual climb to 650 m N.A.P. is rewarded with gorgeous sweeping views.

Day 6: Monschau - Düren, 44 mi. (71 km) 
In the morning you will continue to enjoy the wealth of natural beauty that the Eifel region has to offer. The River Rur will be your guide today, winding down to the ‘Flachland’ below.

Day 7: Düren - Vlodrop 45 mi. (72 km) 
You will enjoy more beautiful scenery on your last cycling day. The journey down the River Rur continues until just before the Netherlands border when you turn off to visit De Meinweg National Park. One of the highlights of today is the Dalheimer mill which is still functioning today.

    My third trip booked through and my third wonderful summer of biking! Three years ago, We traveled through Provence Villages. Last year through Slovenia and Croatia, and this year through Three Counties - Netherland, Belgium and Germany. We have LOVED each of these explorations: countrysides, villages, forests, inns, seasides, agriculture, architecture and delicacies. The days were never dull, they were not too difficult, they filled us with a sense of peace and joy. We completed our trip in Europe excited to dream of where our next Tripsite adventure might take us!

    Hello some feedback from our bike trip to better the experience.

    We had a flat tire and the bike pumps didn't work. We were in a group of four and none of them worked. Also there were no tire tubes! Should we have taken some with us? If so I didn't read that suggestion in the info provided.

    We only had two saddlebags
    No knobs on kick stands
    No stem caps
    Odometers only worked on one bike and one bike didn't have one at all
    Bells didn't work on all bikes
    The handle bars were loose on one bike and that was quite worrisome going down hills
    On the bike trip from Dresden to Wittenburg we did a couple of years ago we were sized to our bike by a nice gentle man who took the time to explain aspects of the bike and we appreciated his efforts. We didn't have that attention this time so wondered if the bikes actually were road worthy, especially when we came to facing a fairly challenging route. The feed back from the bike Read more… shop in Huckelhoven was that the man caring for the bikes or owning the bikes was not as committed to his responsibilities to do so.. Just a comment they passed on and I am passing on to you.

    We do appreciate the ease with which to book these bike trip through emails on line etc.
    the hotel people along the trip were so friendly and accommodating and made us feel very welcome.
