Along the “Vëlosummer” routes, cyclists can collect stickers and win great prizes. When you buy something, have a drink, eat or pay admission at one of the participating businesses, you receive a sticker. You can stick these on a collection card in the handy postcard format (available in the participating businesses). Once you’ve collected five stickers, you can enter the competition by sending in the card.
The 50 km long western tour starts out at the P&R near Junglinster. The western route connects the valleys of the Sûre and Black Ernz. The route first descends via Junglinster and Godbrange into the valley of the White Ernz and then to Larochette, where you can admire the imposing castle. Above the valley, the route leads to the beautiful villages of Eppeldorf and Bigelbaach until you reach the Sûre valley. Along the river, the tour leads to Grundhof and then into the shady valley of the Black Ernz, which has less traffic for cyclists, to the village of Mullerthal, where you visit a former mill at the Heringer Millen Tourist Centre. Then continue past the Schiessentümpel waterfall and the refreshing Kallektuffquell spring into the valley to Reuland, where you can take a short break at the Reiländer Millen. Then it’s back to Junglinster with its imposing radio antennas.
