90 km
2550 ascent meters     
The first stage will start straight away direction Côte de St.-Roch. Beautiful biking direction Bonnerue and further up against the sharp Ourthe-flanks. We cross over to Warempage. First supply zone. If you are in to a rather calm start of your fun-tour, it’s an option to go back from here and limit you to the ' 47 km'-trip. Any how, that's the only shortcut option in this ride. Perhaps more ' medium ' so and not really "large", although we have put it in our review under that umbrella. The supply zone, however, is also the gateway to a never before discovered mountainbike area in LCMT. We designed indeed a 40 km long biking trail through beautiful Ardennes forest. Enjoy this succession of descents and climbs. During our winter exploration it was quite a challenge to keep our feet dry when (on foot) crossing the water near Mousny. But, all the time off road biking in this fully wooded area is a 100%  nature experience! We get our second supply near Givroulle (Bertogne) and also found a challenging ‘best climber’-contest just after crossing the main road Bertogne-La Roche. A spicy climb over typical stones brings us back to Warempage (supply again, same as 1st passage). The LCMT-bike peloton then turn on course to Engreux, also there is another rather long ascent. With what you already have done, fatigue in the legs sure will play in everyone's judgment about the gravity of that slope. Through the environment of Achouffe (remain south of the ‘beer-village') we get the finish gradually in sight.
