The Vélomédiane Claudy Criquielion is the largest and oldest gran fondo of the Benelux. The course around La-Roche-en-Ardenne is nowhere flat. Among others, the Mur de la Velomediane, Côte de Roche-à-Frêne, Col de Rideux and the Col d'Haussire (toughest slope in Belgium) demand the utmost.
At the Vélomédiane you can also ride for gold, silver and bronze. Check the limits here.
The Vélomédiane is not just hard cycling, it is a complete happening for the region. The whole day, musicians are along the route to ease the pain. The finish location is a big party. While enjoying a Belgian beer you can recover from the efforts.
