Sep 8, 2019 - September 8 Sunday Liege

Sunday, September 8 It poured in the night, but despite the cloud covering, the morning was dry and cool We left for Liege around 9:30 to go to La Batte, the largest open-air Sunday market in Belgium. It has over four hundred vendors offering all the typical market fare like produce, clothing, shoes, linens, meats, breads, hot food, gadgets, toys.... Not so typical were live chickens, budgies and rats Once again, we had to search for parking, but we ended up only a couple of blocks away from the market, which stretches along the Meuse...

Apr 15, 2014 - Valkenberg to Liege

Day 12 Today we actually had a chance to sleep in as the transfer leg to Liege is only 63km. After a leisurely breakfast we rolled out of Valkenberg at about 9:00am. The roads in Holland were very smooth and well maintained, the bike lanes but on-road and off-road are clean and rubble free making for smooth safe riding. Unfortunately it wasn't long before we rode back into Belgium. It was easy to see despite there being no border post. The road surface deteriorated markedly and there were few bike lanes in this part of Belgium. Lunch was...
