In some places the road surface of this climb is bad, but it can be ridden with a racing bike.

The first section is concrete mixed with packed dirt, a bit rough but still very much doable on a road bike. The second, upper part, is asphalt (directly from the border upwards). The side of the road roughly 2/3's of the way up has washed away in the storms of july 2021 but there are fences bo... read more

The first section is concrete mixed with packed dirt, a bit rough but still very much doable on a road bike. The second, upper part, is asphalt (directly from the border upwards). The side of the road roughly 2/3's of the way up has washed away in the storms of july 2021 but there are fences bordering that part of.

In short: a fun ascent through the forest!

nice climb, but all unpaved. bad for a bike. within a few hnoderd meters one of us had a flat tire. then the rest of the piece walked. for mountain bikers very nice.

mooie klim, maar alles onverhard. slecht voor een wielrenfiets. binnen een paar hnoderd meter had een van ons een lekke band. toen maar de rest van het stuk gelopen. voor mountainbikers wel zeer mooi.

Then unfortunately you have done the wrong climb. Probably the Snauwenberg which runs parallel to Altenbroek.

Dan heb je helaas de verkeerde beklimming gedaan. Waarschijnlijk de Snauwenberg die parallel loopt aan Altenbroek.

The climb quietly runs through the valley of the Noorbeek River, until after a left turn the road suddenly winds up steeply between the trees. Welcome cooling down on this hot day (evening ride still 28 degrees) in the shadow of first the steep hill next to the road and then the trees.
The road surface is bad, especially in the flatter first part with many holes.

De klim loopt rustig door het dal van de Noorbeek, totdat na een bocht naar links de weg ineens steil omhoog kronkelt tussen de bomen. Welkome afkoeling op deze hete dag (avondritje met nog 28 graden) in de schaduw van eerst de steile heuvel naast de weg en daarna van de bomen.
Het wegdek is vooral in het vlakkere eerste stuk slecht met veel gaten.

For a change of scenery the Altenbroek is not so bad. Especially on a hot day with the sun burning, this climb is a good place to cross the border because you're cycling in the shade of the trees. The road surface is a bit of a strange weathered concrete one on the Flemish side. As soon as you enter The Netherlands it suddenly becomes nice tarmac :)

Om eens af te wisselen is de Altenbroek nog helemaal niet zo verkeerd. Zéker op een hete dag met brandende zon is deze klim een goede plek om de grens over te steken omdat je in de schaduw van de bomen fietst. Het wegdek is een beetje vreemd verweerd beton aan de Vlaamse zijde. Zodra je Nederland in rijdt wordt het pardoes mooi asfalt :)

Excellent and wonderfully quiet crossing of the Voerstreek to South-Limburg. Road surface is not really good at the bottom of the climb, but still doable.

Prima en heerlijk rustige doorsteek van de Voerstreek naar Zuid-Limburg. Wegdek is onderaan de klim niet echt goed, maar nog goed te doen.

The asphalt is reasonably ok, even as a descent.
As with Schophemerheide, Ulvend, Gieveld, Beusdael castle are all better ways to get from Belgium to the Netherlands.

asfalt is redelijk ok, zelfs als afdaling nog redelijk te doen.
Net zoals bij Schophemerheide geldt dat Ulvend, Gieveld, kasteel van Beusdael allemaal mooiere manieren zijn om van België naar Nederland te fietsen.
