Mountain bike tours in East Belgium


MTB do's and don'ts

Mountain biking in East Belgium is permitted on forest and woodland paths. Paths may only be used if they have an MTB marking (blue triangle with two blue dots);

  • Local path closures must be respected. They are usually in place for a good reason. Do not enter private property without permission.
  • Be considerate to wildlife: wild animals in the woods and out in the open deserve particular thoughtfulness. Avoid making unnecessary noise in the woods and make sure you finish your bike tour before dusk!
  • In the autumn, it is best to find out about shooting and hunting activities before going on a tour. Make sure you pay heed to any notices posted in hunting areas.
  • - > "Plan your tour" – information on closed hunting areas
  • Respect other people who are out enjoying nature – to avoid startling hikers and walkers, reduce your speed when passing to walking pace. Stop if the path is narrow. If possible, ride in small groups only.
  • Do not leave any rubbish behind.
  • Pay heed to the general traffic regulations. Take care when crossing or using main roads.
  • Wear a helmet for your own safety. Check that your bike is in proper condition prior to each tour.
