Cycling routes

If you wish to reach the campuses of Liège and Gembloux by bicycle, here is a series of routes validated by the ULiège cycling community. These routes use as much as possible the existing cycling facilities and secondary roads.

These routes can be consulted online and downloaded (gpx format) to be used with a GPS.
