If you are looking for suitable lodgings during the LCMT mountainbike tour/Cross-duathlon, you can send us an e-mail if you want to stay in the Youth Hostel in nearby village Bevercé (part of Malmédy.

Always for 3 nights and you better come together with some friends since these are the available rooms there (in half pension): 

-  one 4-p room

- five 8-p rooms (min. 5 persons need to stay in such a room)

And from now on you can also book directly a room in DAFT Hotel in Malmédy (route de Waimes). You can choose min. 3 nights in that long holiday weekend, whether in a 2 p-room (14 availble) or in a 4 p-familyroom (2 available). Daft Hotel also has a number of glamping facilities.

All stages designed now, subscribe now (till 31 January = cheaper) & lodgings via LCMT-organisation available

The new LCMT route with beautiful stages from Malmedy is on the table for approval at the Department of Nature and Forest. Based on our own explorations, we dare to hope for an almost unchangeable trajectory for both the XL and the shorter large and medium distances. Of course we will have to go back to check by bike in coming spring there have been any sudden obstacles on the route after the winter. But anyone who continues to follow the PARCOURS page from now on will always see the most up-to-date version of the planned LCMT stages.

Because you still enjoy a discount rate before January 31 and we are happy to take action with Velofollies (bicycle fair in Kortrijk these days), there is currently a FREE ticket to be won. You can see that on our LCMT-Facebook page: question = how many kilometers will have to be signposted by our team in total this year if we add up both the 3 XL-LCMT stages and the 3 XL-Flanders Fields Gravel Tour stages? With the latter it is still a bit of a guess, since those rides have not yet been officially announced. But for this action we will retain the routes currently drawn and add them to the Ardennes bike tour (XL only, so do not count the shortcuts for medium or large).

What's there to win? Whoever comes closest with his/her answer WINS 1 FREE PARTICIPATION for the LCMT or (free choice) the Flanders Fields Gravel Tour from Ypres at the end of August! We will also raffle 4 extra prizes among all who participate in this Facebook action share + xxx kilometer answer)! Among those prizes: LCMT cycling shirt + Poppy shirt... (to be received at the start of the cycling event or to be picked up personally in Biking Bar Ypres as soon as it reopens after the renovation). You don't have a Facebook account? No problem, send your guess (or calculation) to info@lcmt.be and you have an equal chance.

You were already registered and have already paid? Don't worry, if you become the winner we will refund your registration fee!

Lodgings via LCMT organization? In the coming days (after Velofollies) we will work out accommodation formulas via both the Youth Hostel in Bevercé (1 four-person room plus 5 eight-person rooms to be filled with at least 5) and a second beautiful accommodation in neighboring Waimes (more details will follow). ).

Now developping: 1st edition of the new Flanders Fields Gravel Tour (Ypres, end of August '23)

Biking Events (since 1999 organizing also the LCMT mountainbike tour  in the Belgian Ardennes) is launching a new cycling event: the 1st Flanders Fields Gravel Tour. Also a three-day tour, but now from the home base where Biking Box Cycling Experience Centre is located: YPRES! With this we are fully committed to the many cycling and historical assets that Flanders Fields offer.

Recently we have been working hard behind the scenes to make this unique gravel three-day event possible in 2023. In close collaboration with the Royal Ypres Cycling Club, which itself will be responsible for the international UCI junior race "Route des Géants" on August 27, we will soon also officially present this new top weekend in terms of cycling experience in Ypres and the Westhoek.

The proven success ingredients of the LCMT are incorporated into the Flanders Fields Gravel Tour. An excellently arranged all-in package, coupled with the option to book accommodation immediately.

A maximum of 550 participants (by analogy with the nearly 55,000 names on the Menin Gate Memorial) can obtain a participation certificate as soon as registrations are opened.

On the final day it will also be possible for 'locals' to register for that one day only (always subject to registration in advance, so no longer the day itself). And there is the option to sign up as a 'gravel' cyclist for 'Coureur & Entrepreneur', a previously successfully proven bicycle concept for cycling entrepreneurs who get to know each other better in a cycling atmosphere. “Coureur & Entrepreneur” was already a direct hit in 2022, then only with a guided tour on the road. Now that the off-road option of the Gravel Tour also becomes possible at the same time, a maximum of 30 Coureur & Entrepreneur tickets for the Gravel portion will be made available.

You can ride the Flanders Fields Gravel Tour with a gravel bike, mountain bike or cyclocross bike.

The three-day Gravel Tour is also included in the cycling calendar of Cycling Flanders (those who have a license as a cycling tourist or cyclist do not have to pay any additional insurance).

Pending the official press presentation, as well as the new specific website, we as an organization will now first strive for all necessary permissions, in particular for the course section that we would love to run partly on northern French roads. To be continued.
