Larochette Bikecamp: beginner's weekend around the old medieval castle

Our locals, Jerry and Pitt, invite you for two days around the little village of Larochette, on the edge of the Müllerthal, dominated by one of the most impressive fortified castles of Luxembourg. Being based in Larochette allows to avoid the most difficult trails of the Müllerthal. On the other hand,  it gives the opportunity to enclose other areas, like the "Noumer Léen" (featuring sandstone rocks, canyons and caves) or the deep forests around Fischbach, offering mostly large and easy tracks.

 

The objective of this camp is to introduce beginners into multi-day biking and to lead them into their first singletrail experience. There are less singletrails included in a "bikecamp" than in a "trailcamp" and the ones that are, are easy to ride, flowy and not steep. The purpose will be to make participants feel at ease and enjoy, while progressing through repeating and inspiring each other.

 

Day 1 leads towards the west, in direction of the nice "Noumer Léen" whereas day 2 heads south, towards Fischbach. Lunch will be taken on the spot (picnic) or in a local café/camping/restaurant, in accordance with the weather conditions.

 

Average biking distance per day will not exceed 30-35 km, and 500-750 m of uphill climb, though there remains ample time to do more, for those who want. On the other hand, for the less experienced riders, there will almost always be a shortcut available.
