    From Panache in La Roche we will be riding two very nice routes in the Belgian Ardennes. This big trip is named after the Champagne species with a very sweet character, the "DOUX". And that's what this one should be called, not as intense as the BRUT and the DEMI-SEC but certainly as challenging! We go in 2 days time for 220km and 3900hm!

Explanation gravity level

We roughly determine the heaviness of a trip based on a variety of circumstances. Severity can be determined by distances or by the altitude meters in distances. In addition, you experience a ride on a gravel or mountain bike already 'heavier' than a road bike ride.

Per category this is approximately what you can think of. Always discuss with us alternatives or modified routes which also influence the heaviness.
