This village is located in the middle of all possible mountain bike routes in South Limburg, but also the Voer region in Belgium and the routes to Aachen in Germany. This unique part of the Netherlands is known for the green rolling hills, the many picturesque villages and the special nature with quiet areas. For mountain bikers, the area has hundreds of kilometers of trails and routes. For example, all kinds of connections and combinations can be made, so that there is a wide range for every level.

Two days of training and riding trails

Day 1 – Meet & Greet Valkenburg and immediately on the road

On Saturday morning you travel to Valkenburg on your own. Here you will meet the guides and the other participants. We immediately set off and drive a beautiful and challenging journey. During this tour we come across technical passages that we repeat and where we do exercises. Our guide will give you several tips and tricks to make progress in your technique. During mountain biking you can immediately apply what you have learned in practice while riding a cool trip; learning by riding! This way you discover the Limburg Heuvelland and improve your skills at the same time! In the evening after dinner we discuss the day, plan the next day and look again at the group layout.

Day 2 – A little more challenging and further perfecting

On Sunday we go out again for a whole day. We drive a completely different route and make the route even more challenging than the day before. Again you get tips and tricks to improve your skills. At the end of the afternoon we conclude with a drink before we drive back home.

Lots of learning, driving and enjoying

Within 2.5 hours you are on holiday in your own country from Utrecht. South Limburg offers everything that makes a two-day MTB training successful; a beautiful landscape, endless mountain bike trails and all this combined with a beautiful culture and a hospitable population. Do you already ride well on the trails on the ridge and/or the Veluwe, but have you not yet received any instruction about mountain biking? Or have you already had basic training but do you want to apply it in hilly terrain? Then this mountain bike trip is definitely for you.

Fun and sporty days

Saturday morning gathering in a fresh, but sun-drenched Valkenburg. After an introductory round, while enjoying a cup of coffee, we start our tour. Everyone in our group comes from the flatter parts of the Netherlands, so on the first climb there is a kind of pile-up… But in good spirits we all get back on the pedals and after that it goes a lot better. It’s a wonderful trip. All kinds of climbs, descents, paths, trails, drops and beautiful nature. Gijs-Jan navigates us through everything flawlessly, the only hitch is the closed supermarket, but luckily GJ has enough energy to continue cycling and come back with snacks, fruit and drinks. It’s two fun, sporty days. As always with Epique. Make sure you are in good shape, because that increases the fun enormously!
