Zeker eentje die je moet meepikken. Ook een van de weinige die je met de vrienden eenvoudig in peloton opfietst door geringe percentages. mooi, kronkelig, leuk

Nice climb that is doable for everyone. Almost no traffic and a very wide track. Some parts of the track are not too good, but certainly doable.

Leuke klim die voor iedereen doenbaar is. Bijna geen verkeer en een zeer brede baan. Op sommige stukken ligt het wel niet al te goed maar zeker doenbaar.

Nice climb which is indeed very different from the rest in this region.
Not steep, but with nice turns through the woods a wonderful runner.

mooie klim die inderdaad heel anders is dan de rest in deze regio.
Niet steil, maar met mooie bochten door de bossen een heerlijke loper.

A classic, a climb that I love, it goes up regularly and it can go up quickly
The downside is that it is very busy with bikes, pedestrians, cars and motorbikes.

Un classique , une montée que j'adore, cela monte régulièrement et cela peux se monter vite

Very nice climb that is never steep (The elevation profile is not correct here, because I think this climb never goes above 6-7%, and certainly not in the forest. The first 500m are the steepest, after that it's a real runner.

Heel mooie klim die nooit steil is (Het hoogteprofiel klopt hier niet, want ik denk dat deze klim nooit boven de 6-7% komt, en al zeker niet in het bos. De eerste 500m zijn de steilste, daarna is het een echte loper.

Lovely climb that you can take very smoothly, but still twists and turns through the beautiful forest. I always like to take it with me when I'm in the area

Heerlijke klim die je heel vlot kan nemen, maar die toch mooi kronkelt doorheen het mooie bos. Ik neem hem altijd graag mee als ik in de buurt ben

I find it a climb unlike any other in the Flemish Ardennes/Pays des Collines.
It is a real runner that never gets steep and that twists beautifully through a forest. You imagine yourself to be on a col.
It gets a bit steeper at the beginning of the forest but it quickly levels off. The steepest part is maybe after turning onto the main road near Chalet Gerard.

Ik vind het een klim die niet lijkt op andere klimmen in de Vlaamse Ardennen/Pays des Collines.
Het is een echte loper die nooit steil wordt en die prachtig kronkelt door een bos. Je waant je even op een col.
Het wordt even wat steiler aan het begin van het bos maar het vlakt snel terug af. Het steilste stuk is misschien nog na het opdraaien van de grote weg bij Chalet Gerard.

Bois de la Houppe is easy to do, you can drive up at your own pace because it never gets really steep. The winding last piece through the forest is a real gem.

Bois de la Houppe is goed te doen, je kan er op je eigen tempo naar boven rijden want het wordt nooit echt steil. Het kronkelende laatste stuk door het bos is echt een parel.

A very nice climb because of its quiet location and route through a beautiful forest. This one is also part of the Etixx Classic.

Een zeer fraaie klim door de rustige ligging en route door een mooi bos. Deze is ook onderdeel van de Etixx Classic.

This climb is actually not located in the Flemish Ardennes but in its Walloon extension, "Le Pays des Collines". The same geological region as the Flemish Ardennes but the roads there are usually more rural and quiet. Le Bois de la Houppe is long and not very steep but it gives a real Ardennes feeling when you ride through the forest at the top. Descended during the Grinta Challenge - La Tournay.

Deze klim ligt eigenlijk niet in de Vlaamse Ardennen maar in zijn Waalse verlengde, « Le Pays des Collines ». Dezelfde geologische regio dan de Vlaamse Ardennen maar de wegen daar zijn meestal landelijker en rustiger. Le Bois de la Houppe is lang en niet bepaald steil maar geeft een echt Ardens gevoel als je doort het bos aan de top rijdt. Wort afgedaald gedurende de Grinta Challenge - La Tournay.
