If you’d prefer to rest your legs today, stay in Liege and enjoy the local cafes. You can watch the race unfold on screen and be at the finish to see the riders cross the line. In the afternoon, we will collect rental bikes and assist with re-packing your bike for travel.

More About the Event
The Liege Bastogne Liege Sportive is the hardest sportive of the spring classics. For amateur riders, the ultimate challenge is to do the long distance and ride the same route the pros will ride on the following day. You will climb Côte de Saint-Roch (the wall of Houffalize), Côte de Wanne, and Côte de Stockeu.
Shorter distances of 90 miles and 45 miles are available. All Sportive distances start and finish near Liege.
Please note that the start and the finish of the LBL Challenge is no longer in the center of Liege. The Sportive now starts and finishes in Sprimont.
