The shortest route will mostly take in Limburg’s hills and the fruit-growing region around Eijsden-Margraten. Needless to say, cyclists will pass the Valkenburg caves and the Cauberg hill.
In Eijsden-Margraten, which is home to many fruit growers, cyclists will enjoy a quick stopover at Fruit Erop Uit. This organisation will, in a surprising manner, offer participants the very best that Limburg has on offer in terms of fruit farming. The highlight of all routes will definitely be passing through the American soldiers’ cemetery in Margraten. We will bring an impressive salute to these heroes, our liberators, who fell in combat in World War II.
After Margraten, cyclists will head for the ‘Land of Lime’. Participants in the 60km tour will enjoy a food break at the Cortenbach estate in Voerendaal. After visiting this special location, cyclists will continue down unpaved roads to the Brand beer brewery in Wijlre. Following a nice pint, they will climb a few challenging but very beautiful hills on their way to the finish line in Valkenburg.
