Here is a nice, energising circuit offering the chance to discover an area of the Condroz region to the south of Ciney called the Sud Cinacien.
From the start at Ciney, we’re off on a voyage of discovery in the countryside of the Condroz. Typical farmhouses, built of local stone, and other aspects of local heritage punctuate the circuit: roadside shrines to the Virgin Mary, crosses at junctions, chapels and – a high point of this trip in more senses than one – the ancient limetree, the Tilleul de Ronvaux.
We cross the Sud Cinacien by passing “de tiges en tiges” (from ridge to ridge), a distinctive feature of the Condroz landscape, heading first towards the stream called the Lincia where we find the Ferme d’Auwez – this region has secret corners that only mountain bikers can reach…
Near the Domaine Provincial de Chevetogne, the wooded paths intensify and lead to some nice discoveries, notably the woods called the Bois des Six Frères, the Bois des Cresses and the Fond de Pique, consisting of fi ne beech trees and oaks.
After this, at Namorimont and then at Corbion, we can see how the yellow stone used in villages around these parts is a key feature of their enchantment.
