    This circuit is a lovely introduction to the landscape, characterised by a succession of climbs and slopes, mixing woodland with open countryside.

    Time passes slowly in the village of Vyle-et- Tharoul. This itinerary will go to the heart of the Condroz, on a superb route that takes us first to Molu, with its rustic setting radiating harmony and tranquillity.

    Throughout the circuit there are beautiful examples of rural heritage: old farmhouses and hamlets lit up by their yellow stone, as witnessed at Molu and Jamagne.

    To discover


    Modave Castle

    Further along, we come to a small valley formed by a stream, the Goesnes. We are well and truly in the Condroz here: after a ridge comes the descent on the other side… before climbing the hill opposite planted with maize.

    After the Bois de Goesnes and the Château de Fléron, the route skirts the extensive village of Marchin. Rising from the centre, the twisted spire of its church is a famous and curious landmark. After Marchin the circuit passes through some superb villages lying comfortably curled into their bucolic little valleys.

    Good to know!


    At Huy, the Chemin des Chapelles is a notorious cycle climb, rising steeply from the Meuse basin, with some parts at 25%. Also known as the “Mur de Huy” (Wall of Huy), it features in classic races.
