That is why, since 2016, they have introduced new bearings and seals for all pedals. So, in order to check if it’s actually is an improvement, it was time for a long-term review.

On the edge of the Ardennes, where the elevation differences clearly influence the scenery and trails that aren’t yet very challenging, is where the MTB route Theux (blue loop) lies.

With only 2,9km of track the MTB route Kwintelooyen is one of the shortest but definitely not one of the easiest routes.

With multiple MTB races a year and a MTB route, Assen is an attractive location for mountain bikers. The recreation area Baggelhuizen that has been chosen for this, features a mix of water, beach, forest and slight altitude differences. These are all ingredients to make an interesting MTB route.
One of the most popular MTB routes on the Utrechtse Heuvelrug is the short MTB route Rhenen. On this short 6,5km track, time flies while riding on the fast, flowy and well maintained single tracks. This is a route suited for novice mountain bikers but, due to the variation of winding trails, offers enough fun for the more experienced riders.
A short novice MTB route through the forest with a few singletrails over nearly flat terrain in the province of Drenthe. The MTB route Grolloo can, with its 15km and 118m of ascent, be considered novice route of a warming up for the adjacent MTB route Gieten.
Across the border where the countryside of Groningen changes to Drenthe’s afforestation is where the MTB route Gieten resides. A 29km long MTB track that runs almost entirely off road and leads you especially on windy single trails through the forest. On this semi-novice MTB route you can enjoy the scenery, tranquility and flowy trails.
Nice windy narrow offroad trails that are secluded from the hustle and bustle in the province of Drenthe. That all sounds nice but the MTB route Sleen has more to offer. A large number of single trails with good flow and challenging obstacles such as drops, rock gardens and north shores are a few unique features of this route.
