Iets ten noorden van Emmen liggen twee korte lussen waaruit de MTB route Emmen bestaat. De 6 km lange lus door de Emmerdennen bevat enkele verassende singletrails, een technisch klimmetje en deze lus heeft een redelijk goede flow. De andere lus door het Valtherbos laat je gedurende 16 km voornamelijk over lange rechte en brede paden rijden.
A beautiful MTB route through the wooded nature reserve on the Hondsrug. The MTB route Exloo has plenty of single tracks with good flow and runs almost completely off-road on winding trails between the villages Exloo and Borger. The slight differences in elevation, open scenery and some country roads furthermore provide a variation in the route.
With a name like Stadskanaal, you quickly think of a lot of water and the familiar extensive agricultural areas in Groningen and it’s not far from reality. Climbs are not to be expected and riding against the strong wind may be the biggest challenge. A few forested areas were selected to be part of the MTB route Stadskanaal to make it partially off-road and short ride.
Forest and single trails don’t directly come to mind when you think of MTB routes in the province of Groningen. There are luckily fanatic trail builders and some afforestation as part of the MTB route Ter Apel. The result is a short route through the typical Groningen scenery (over paved and country roads) combined with flowy single trails through the forest.
This 23 km long MTB route takes you over the heath and slightly accented terrain in the National Park Drents-Friese Wold. The MTB route Diever runs completely off-road along the border with Friesland and alternates between meandering single tracks and long straight sections.
The MTB route Maastricht allows you to enjoy the surroundings in a easy way. You will not encounter tough climbs or technical trails, track, instead you can enjoy the typical countryside of Limburg. For a technical and challenging route you can go to the nearby MTB route Sint Pietersberg.
The MTB route Bilzen (Hoeselt) is a novice route where the mountain bike can also be exchanged for a cyclocross bike. You ride over a variety of surfaces where the paved roads clearly have the upper hand. Lack of technical trails and forest ensure that the you barely get the feeling that you are mountain biking.
The mountain bike track Margraten offers altitude differences as you would expect from the south of Limburg but packed in a track that’s ride able by novice riders. Singletrails are rare on this track and climbs aren’t that steep (with a single exception). Enjoying the scenery is the main selling point of this track.
Mountain biking in central Limburg seems less popular than in the other parts of Limburg. There are nearly no routes in this area and the routes Echt/Susteren you can’t really call a MTB route. If you want to go mountain biking in this area, then the Sittard/Geleen region is the best option with the MTB route Windraak.
