De Groote Heide has a vast and continually expanding network of mountain biking routes that cater to the tastes of experienced and more recreational mountain bikers alike. With routes through both Belgium and the Netherlands, the possibilities are endless. There's a route for everyone!
De Groote Heide has a large number of clearly marked mountain biking trails, with difficulty levels varying from very difficult to very easy. The routes lead across single tracks and forest paths and range from just a couple to over one hundred of kilometres in length. Just have a look at the routes in and around Hamont-Achel and Neerpelt and the mountain biking trails in Brabant (NL).
Throughout the year tours and competitions are organised for mountain bikers and cyclo-cross riders. These are well-organised events for both recreational cyclists and well-trained athletes. Follow these links for an overview of tours and competitions in the Dutch part of De Groote Heide and in Belgian Limburg.
De Groote Heide is an excellent place to go mountain biking. There are several forests and heathlands where long trails cross nature for miles on end. Enjoy the tranquility of nature and, of course, the thrill of mountain biking. There are beautiful routes on both sides of the border, as well as many an outdoor cafe to strengthen up after a long trip.
