Aug 25, 2018 - Valkenburg

The drive across Belgium took us through gorgeous green countryside with plenty of thick forests on a road void of potholes and debris. It was truly pleasurable and continued on into Germany. One of our favourite towns, Brugge, was again very beautiful and it was great to have visited it once more. We chose Valkenburg in the Netherlands and Kessel and Furth in Germany for short stops on the way to visit Nuremberg. Each stop had its own claim to fame. Kassel's huge park is the oldest in Europe while Germany's first railway opened in Furth...

They also had an impressive metal toboggan run going...

Apr 13, 2014 - Maastricht to Valkenburg and the Amstel Gold Race

Day 10 Today we will ride two stages of the Amstel Gold Race which takes place within this small section of Holland bordered on three sides by Belgium and Germany. The race is named after a brand of beer sold in Holland. Due to the small size of the region the route of the race crosses and re-crosses the same hilly region. There are many short, sharp climbs which have maximum gradients exceeding 12% and up to 20%.. The first 74km leg took us from Maastricht to Valkenburg and it was relatively flat until we reached Valkenburge where we had...
