Prepare for a variety of road surfaces on this route, including smooth pavement, gravel, rocky paths, cobblestones, and dirt. When bikepacking, be sure to adjust your tire size accordingly. The southern section of the route near Liège is notably rocky, so we recommend using tires of at least 43mm width if you plan to bikepack the entire route. For our own ride, we opted for 50-55mm Panaracer GravelKing SK tires.
