Trip Reports » BikePacking Transardennaise (Belgium – Ardennes) 153km

Transardennaise route

 

The Transardennaise is a marked hiking trail from La Roche en Ardenne to Bouillon, straight across the Ardennes (Belgium).

The trail 100% bike-able, so ideal for a 2-day bikepacking trip.

Total distance is 153 km with about 4000 ascent metres.

About 85 – 90% is unpaved road (gravel – doubletrack – singletrack) and you’re never far away from a small village to resupply.

I’ve also made a short movie which gives you a first impression of this trail.

BIKEPACKING GRAND TRANSARDENNAISE

So you see that even a small country like Belgium, can offer a lot to bikepackers :)

 

Kind regards,

I’ve always wanted to go to Belgium in April for the Spring Classics, now there’s another reason to go!
Thanks for sharing.

Tx JRA.
We always ride all the Spring Classics here (Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, Omloop van Vlaanderen, Ename Classic and of course thé Ronde van Vlaanderen (Tour of Flanders).
If you’re ever come over to Belgium, just let me know.
We always have a spare bed available and please feel free to join us for a ride.
But take into account that there is a limit on participants for the Ronde van Vlaanderen. So subscribe early enough.

I would love to come some day. Thanks for the hospitality, Berten. Maybe we can ride the bergs together one day in the future.

Bergen,
I am thinking of doing this trip this weekend but it has been raining all week. What do you think the trail conditions will be like…very muddy? What percent of trail is gravel vs dirt vs road?
Thanks,
Hal
