Long live the bicycle: cycling is almost considered a religion in Belgium.
In Belgium, the bicycle is not just a bicycle. Rather, it has almost religious status here - especially when it comes to a model of sporty design. Hardly any other country in the world has such a high density of cyclists per citizen as Belgium, in hardly any other country are road cyclists cheered on so frenetically and in hardly any other country in the world is cyclocross considered a popular sport. So it is obvious that the tours of the 3RIDES festival must also lead through the east of Belgium. Even if it is only to enjoy a tasty portion of frites during the stopover in Eupen. But East Belgium also presents itself as a first-class cycling region, if only because of the foothills of the Ardennes, the Belgian sister of the Eifel.
