Verviers to Longwy 217km

576 1024 Gerard O'Connor

The 3rd stage took us through 3 countries. We strayed in Belgium ??, travelled from North to South through beautiful Luxembourg and ended up in a French town Longwy.

Toughest and longest day so far, saw much smaller groups forming as the climbs had a big impact on the largest groups sticking together.

Luxembourg was certainly a highlight the roads were perfect to cycle on and villages and countryside and views were amazing, it almost took the pain of the hills away … well almost.

A lot of tired legs today in very hot conditions, sadly the weather is due to turn very wet tomorrow for another 200km plus ride
