Also called "côte de la Sablière" probably because of the nearby quarry.

The gradients are irregular enough to break the rhythm and ... read more

This climb really kills you. The beginning seems doable and after the turn there doesn't really seem to be a steep part, but then at the very end you get an incredibly steep part...

Deze klim sloopt je behoorlijk. Het begin lijkt goed te doen en na de bocht lijkt er ook niet echt direct een steil stuk aan te komen, maar dan helemaal op het eind krijg je echt nog een ongelooflijk steile strook...

Really a beast of a climb. The climb is actually already over after 500m, but you make altimeters quickly. On the steepest parts, zigzagging is not exceptional.

Echt wel een beest van een klim. De klim is eigenlijk al gedaan na 500m, maar je maakt snel hoogtemeters. Op de steilste stukken is zigzaggen niet uitzonderlijk.

Also called "côte de la Sablière" probably because of the nearby quarry. In my opinion, this is one of the most difficult climbs in Brabant, close in feel to the nearby Chapelle-Saint-Croix climb, despite the absence of cobbles. The gradients are irregular enough to break the rhythm and the steepest part is "blind", you don't see the end until you get there.

The motivated cyclist can link the rue des Radoux and this côte de la Sablière by descending the rue du Drabe between the two (good brakes essential! ;-)).

From a tourist point of view, you can easily reach the Hal wood from the top (splendid wild hyacinths bloom in April and May).

Aussi appelée « côte de la Sablière » certainement en raison de la carrière voisine. Selon moi une des côtes les plus difficiles du Brabant, proche en ressenti de la côte de la Chapelle-Saint-Croix voisine, malgré l'absence de pavés. Les pourcentages sont suffisamment irréguliers pour casser le rythme et le passage le plus raide est «en aveugle», on n'en voit pas la fin avant d'y être.

Le cycliste motivé peut enchaîner la rue des Radoux et cette côte de la Sablière en descendant la rue du Drabe entre les deux (bons freins indispensable ! ;-)).

Du point de vue touristique, on peut rejoindre aisément le bois de Hal à partir du sommet (splendide floraison de jacinthes sauvages aux mois d'avril et de mai).
