Hi

I am off to the Belgium grand prix in spa francorchamps. The race is on for 3 days and then after that I have 11 days to kill so I was wondering does anybody know of any trail centres in Belgium or good places to mountain bike. I have been to spa francorchamps before and it would surprise me if there wasn’t any biking around there.

I am a bit of a novice so nothing too hard please. Can anybody recommend any guide books to look at?

Cheers
Jonny

    Hi Jonny,

    Trailcentres are non existent outside the UK, but if you stop by the local tourist office, they can get you a map of all the trails in the area.

    The 'two dots and a triangle' MTB route logo can be found everywhere, and in the Spa / Malmedy region there is about 600kms of riding to do.
    A little further south the towns of Houffalize and La Roche offer great riding too!
