Super Randonnée Team de Lux
The Super Randonnées are mountainous or hilly permanent rides of minimum 600 km (373
miles) with over 10.000 m (32.800 ft) of elevation gain. They have to be finished within a 60 hour time limit, but they can also be ridden on several days for the Tourist category (with a minimum of 75 kms a day).
These SR are supervised by Sophie Matter, who also organises the famous « 1000 du Sud », for the Audax Club Parisien, that organises the world known Paris-Brest-Paris.
SR can be ridden in Australia, Austria, Brasil, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Taiwan, Ukraine, and the USA.
Belgium added to the list in 2017 with its SR Team de Lux. Starting from Marche-en-Famenne, the route goes through Durbuy (the smallest town in the world) before leaving the Famenne to enter the Ardenne, with the Rideux pass (the only recognised pass in Belgium) and further Luxemburg with its Ardennes and small Switzerland. Then you will head to the German Eifel before coming back to Belgium via some famous hills from Liège-Bastogne-Liège (Wanne, le Stockeu) and la Vélomédiane (Haussire, Beffe).
The ride is best to be done mid May til end of June,considering the blossoming grooms along the roads.
