    The route starts in Gulpen (at the Mosaqua swimming pool, where there is ample parking) and goes anti-clockwise. The route is almost entirely concentrated around the valley of the Gulp. The Gulp is a small river that rises in Belgium in the Land van Herve, and flows into the Netherlands via the Voer region and flows into the river Geul just north of Gulpen. The route follows the river Gulp first upstream (ie into Belgium), and on the way back downstream.Voer region, Land of Herve and Aubel
    That means climbs on the way there on the west side of the Gulpdal. Arrived in the Voer region there is a short trip to the valley of the stream Veurs. The route eventually ends up in the Land of Herve: undulating hilly landscape, with many meadows bordered by hedges, and the route goes right through the center town of Aubel. On the route in the Land of Herve there is a fairly steep climb (Berg La Clouse), carved by the river Berwijn (La Berwinne). After this tough climb you come to the ridge east of Aubel with beautiful views. Near Hombourg, after a descent to the Gulpdal you must immediately turn left at the lowest point (pay attention at this exit!) and then follow the asphalted cycle path over a former railway line around Hombourg (you have to brave a hundred meters of cobbled road to to get on the bike path).
    Via Sippenaeken and the ascent of the Kasteelstraat you will once again end up in the Voer region, in the town of Teuven and eventually you will cycle back into the Netherlands via the beautiful climb of the Gieveld. You then cycle on the plateau south of Gulpen (Plateau van Crapoel) that slopes gently in a northerly direction, and descends the Gulperberg to the center of Gulpen. Then it's not finished yet because you finally climb the Beversberg. But if you are tired of it, you can skip the Beversberg, after all you are already in Gulpen: it saves you 6 km and 80 vertical meters.There is a total of about 4 kilometers of (separate) cycle path on the route: on the ridge along the Oude Luikerweg between Reijmerstok and Euverem, and over the former railway line around Hombourg.Text and route: Racefiets-routes.nl
