They had forecasted rainy weather, but it stayed dry almost all day, except for a few drops. However, it was overcast and chilly, about 18 to 19°C. Slightly more windy fra south and west, so still tailwind.
Superb bike path along the Meuse from Namur to Huy, lavishly signposted. The tarmac a bit more worn down, but still fine. In Huy, we cycle in the pedestrian areas, which is strictly forbidden in Denmark, but in Belgium it's fine. After Huy and its wall (with its vertical tarmac, as it felt!) the route turned cumbersome, when we were led away from the path because of deviations. Especially the suburbs of Liège felt annoying with heavy traffic, rude cardrivers and ugly buildings. And we made a hopeless detour out a canal. But everything well signposted, so we did right. And it's just a periodic nuisance. In the city centre of Liège again splendid bike paths through parks along the river, sometimes arranged on bridges and a path hanging above the water out from the quayside. They love their bikes in Belgium. And they're supposed to be going!
The deviations from the planned route are due to closed sections of the path because of road works on it. I repeat: The signposting of the route does not get slightly poorer, as it's a temporary solution! Such a thing you see only in Holland or Belgium!
