Nature of the route: The Lieropse Heideroute selects 11 or 25 kilometers over the Lieropse Heide and by the Herselse forests. The route includes fun singletracks, some venetian short cliffs and loads of loose sand combined with alternating nature and forest, heath and friends. Marking: The route is marked with wooden poles with in red the international MTB sign (triangle with 2 rounds). Shortenings are indicated by black marks. Environment: Cycling on the Limburg and Brabant border is very much cycled. In addition to the extensive network of cycling trails, many fixed routes for mountain bikers have been built in recent years. The municipality of Someren has also opened a number of beautiful areas for the sporty terrain cyclist. The Lieropian forests were laid on the rough grounds eighty eight years ago. The predominantly coniferous forests slowly make way for mixed vegetation.
