    The starting point of the route is the church of Mariadorp. Via Eijsden you cycle to Belgium and follow the concrete cycle path/quay along the Albert Canal for kilometers. You leave the Meuse valley via the ascent of Montagne Saint-Pierre. The descent from this takes you into the valley of the Jeker. Along the valley of the Jeker (in French this river is called Geer), there are beautiful slopes.The language border is crossed several times. Characteristic of the region north of the Jeker (Haspengouw) are the many good concrete roads leading through fields (for the benefit of farmers). The wind has free rein here. The busier roads in the Jekerdal are avoided by following separate cycle paths (including an asphalt cycle path over a former railway line), and by following roads where only agricultural traffic is allowed.Around the Jekerdal you get the following climbs:- Sur Les Coteaux
    - Thier Saint Laurent
    - Chavée Arecht / Arechtberg (max. 15%).
    - Plattenberg
    - Cote de Wonck. At the end of May 2017, this road was partly closed with concrete blocks, because the rock wall along the road has become unstable. You can just pass it by bike. So pay attention to this. This may have eliminated the one-way traffic of the slightly more southerly ascent of this climb (which would then be a great alternative). I don't know what the situation is now.
    Then you descend on the western side of the Hallembaye on a narrow asphalted back road, but be careful: there is a gate at the bottom of the descent! Via the cycle path along the western side of the Albert Canal you arrive in Hermalle-sous-Argenteau and cross the Meuse. You climb out of the Meuse valley via Rue de Richelle.
    The descent that follows takes you to Dalhem and the Voer region where the river Berwijn (in French Berwinne) has carved out a considerable relief. The two climbs in the Voer region (Clos du Grand Sart and the climb to Neufchateau) also have the greatest height difference on this track. Also enjoy the beautiful views after passing the village of Neufchateau! A long descent brings you in Warsage and then again soon in the Dutch-speaking area.
