Zoals al gezegd werd; even afzien in het begin en nadien valt de klim heel goed mee en kan je groter schakelen.
Top ligt in een veld met geweldig uitzicht op de Vlaamse Ardennen.
Deelt de top met de Edelareberg, Ladeuze en Eikenberg.

The Achterberg is one of my favorite hills in the Flemish Ardennes. When taking the turn, you immediately hit a wall, but after a while you can change gears and get a fantastic view of the region on the right side. Once you've discovered the Achterberg, you'll never ride up the ugly, boring and uninspiring Edelareberg again. This one has the same starting and finishing point, but it follows the main road. So it's much better to go up the Achterberg!

De Achterberg is een van mijn favoriete hellingen in de Vlaamse Ardennen. Bij het opdraaien rijd je meteen tegen een muur aan, maar na even afzien kan je bijschakelen en word je op de rechterkant getrakteerd op een fantastisch uitzicht op de streek. Wie eenmaal de Achterberg ontdekt heeft, rijdt daarna nooit meer de lelijke, saaie en oninspirerende Edelareberg op. Deze heeft hetzelfde start- en eindpunt, maar loopt via de grote weg. Veel beter dus om via de Achterberg naar boven te rijden!

You start this climb almost from standstill, which makes it extra heavy. For 300m you have to bite the bullet, after that it is an easy climb. I like this climb, there is no traffic and few tourists, they prefer the Edelareberg.

Je begint deze beklimming nagenoeg vanuit stilstand, dat maakt het extra zwaar. 300m op de tanden bijten, daarna is het een eenvoudig goedlopend klimmetje. Ik rijd deze klim graag, er is geen verkeer en weinig wielertoeristen, die verkiezen de Edelareberg.
