Good news for cycling fans: the Vëlosummer initiative is back this year. For the 2022 edition, there are 11 routes covering a total of 450km. Throughout this new edition, 120km of roads will be closed to traffic, 103km of them for just one or two weekends.
Vëlosummer is a great opportunity to rediscover the joys of cycling in a safe and practical way, and also to take in some of Luxembourg's most picturesque and varied landscapes, check out cultural attractions, support local shops and products. To help you pinpoint hotels, restaurants and nearby tourist attractions along the way, a handy road map has been produced, showing the different routes in detail. Further information and details about the routes can be found at www.velosummer.lu and via the "Visit Luxembourg" app.
The "bed+bike" and "Move We Carry" initiatives make it easier for cyclists to travel around the country and enjoy all the benefits of "slow tourism" this summer.
A rapidly expanding network
Luxembourg currently has a network of 640km of cycle tracks, set to grow to 900km by 2028.
A network of "express" cycle ways links the country's different regions. This series of 23 cycle ways is expanding rapidly and developing into a dense grid that will facilitate and accelerate travel throughout the country. Local and regional paths and cycle tracks also give cyclists the opportunity to move away from the beaten track and into beautiful natural surroundings.
Move We Carry
The luggage transfer service movewecarry.lu, which cyclists can use to have their luggage delivered free of charge to their next accommodation stop, is available again for 2022. This service is a great practical solution for exploring Luxembourg on foot or by bike.
It is available for any paid accommodation anywhere in the country: the luggage is picked up after 10am and delivered by 4pm on the same day. Your suitcases and other equipment will be following you at a distance from one stage to the next.
Are you after comfort and simplicity? The bed+bike label has been awarded to several hotels and B&Bs that offer a range of services for cyclists: secure storage for bikes, repair and maintenance kits, specific information and hearty, healthy meals to give you all the energy you need for your next ride.
