Lumberjack Gravel Ride

Baraque Fraiture edition

Lumberjack Baraque Fraiture

This is the Lumberjack Baraque Fraiture edition

In the weekend of 10 to 12 September we propose an absolute first: our first Ardennaise Lumberjack! And for the first time a whole weekend of digging! After all, you go on a voyage of discovery in the forests around Houffalize, the MTB mecca of the Benelux, where Café Coureur found his second home. The most beautiful gravel paths await you in this region. We welcome you on Friday evening with a warm-up of 15 km & pasta. On Saturday you can choose between a 75 km ride with 1500 hm or one of 125 KM 3000+ hm. In the evening there is an unadulterated après-velo with Ardennes BBQ. Finally, you can recuperate on Sundays during a 40 km Hangover ride. In between, you will spend the night in our renovated holiday homes or in our (partly renovated) hotel.

This is what your Lumberjack weekend looks like! 


When you check in from 16 pm, we are already waiting with a delicious welcome drink. Take your time to settle down while we make sure your bike is stored safely. There is also the option to throw your legs loose with the 15 km warm-up ride. After this you can slide your feet under the table to fill up with the necessary carbohydrates with a delicious plate of pasta.


The morning morning has gold in the mouth! Breakfast is ready for you from 7:30 am. The participants of the 125 km are expected at the start at 9 am to start their adventure together. The 75 km group can sleep an hour longer, they will start their ride at 10 am.

Along the way, the necessary supplies will be provided (one on the 75 km course and two on the 125 km route). Upon arrival, you can enjoy the well-known and tasted Lumberjack after-party recipe: burgers, beer & beats followed by an unmissable Ardennes BBQ, after which the party night starts.


While the last partygoers visit their room, the early risers will be able to report for breakfast again at 7am. Breakfast is possible until 30am to provide the late pirates with enough fuel! Then you can shake your legs and clear your head again on our 11 km long Hangover ride. The starting time of this can be chosen freely.

We will close this wonderful weekend with an assortment of sandwiches before you start your way home.
