Cycling is popular in Wallonia, filled with arguably the greatest variety and most wonderful cycling the country has to offer.
This diversity stems from overturning a misperception, namely that Belgian cycling is all about pancake-flat riding. Of course, there are routes and rides where the gradient barely tips over 0.5%, which is perfect for sightseeing and a chilled-out day in the saddle.
But Wallonia also provides hilly terrain for those of you looking to build stamina and test your mettle.
