An excellent climb to train on. Long and steady. But not a climb to enjoy. The road is busy with car traffic, straight and surrounded by bushes. No beautiful views. In short, do it while you are there.... read more

An excellent climb to train on. Long and steady. But not a climb to enjoy.
The road is busy with car traffic, straight and surrounded by bushes. No beautiful views.
In short, do it while you are there.

Een uitstekende klim om op te trainen. Lang en gelijkmatig. Maar geen klim om van te genieten.
De weg is druk met auto verkeer, recht en omgeven van bossage. Geen mooie vergezichten.
Kortom, doen als je er toch bent.

The prototype of the long and rolling hill, which is not my cup of tea in normal circumstances. Nice views of the Lienne valley on the way down.

Le prototype de la côte longue et roulante, ce qui n'est pas trop ma tasse de thé en temps normal. Belles vues sur l'encaissement de la vallée de la Lienne dans le sens de la descente.

Nice even climb at about 5%, because of its length ideal for training to get climbing rhythm.
Quite a lot of traffic.

Mooie gelijkmatige klim aan ongeveer 5%, door zijn lengte ideale trainingsklim om klimritme op te doen.
Wel redelijk veel verkeer.

Can you also do climbs in South-Limburg as preparation? for example the Schweiberg or the Vaalserberg or the Camerig/Camerig-West? @climbingtime

Kun je ook beklimmingen in Zuid-Limburg doen als voorbereiding? bijvoorbeeld de Schweiberg of de Vaalserberg of de Camerig/Camerig-West? @klimtijd

Nice climb to warm up for the real work around Trois-Ponts. Longer than expected and because of this you can still acidify before reaching the top !

Lekkere klim om op te warmen voor het echte werk rondom Trois-Ponts. Wel langer dan verwacht en hierdoor kun je alsnog verzuren voordat de top bereikt wordt !
