A very nice col to do, the Col de la Hourcere. The road surface of the col is fine, 2 lanes, and I had the road pretty much to myself, only a handful of cyclists and motorists encountered. So you can focus on yourself here. Nice fairly even climb with lots of bends. Very nice in the descent! You ... read more

A very nice col to do, the Col de la Hourcere.
The road surface of the col is fine, 2 lanes, and I had the road pretty much to myself, only a handful of cyclists and motorists encountered. So you can focus on yourself here.
Nice fairly even climb with lots of bends. Very nice in the descent!
You do ride through the forest for at least 80%, only at the top do you get the nice views, in my case I got above the low hanging clouds, so I rode the last part fully in the sun.
When I rode it (08/22) there was a lot of loose gravel on the road in the run-up to the col (so the front part), probably from recent street repairs. But the part of the col itself did not bother me.

Erg leuke col om te doen, de Col de la Hourcere.
Het wegdek van de col is prima, 2 baans, en ik had de weg zo ongeveer voor mezelf, een handvol fietsers en automobilisten tegengekomen. Dus je kunt je hier prima op jezelf focussen.
Mooie vrij gelijkmatige klim met veel bochten. In de afdaling erg leuk!
Je rijdt wel voor zeker 80% door het bos, pas boven komen de mooie uitzichten, in mijn geval kwam ik boven de laaghangende bewolking uit, dus het laatste stuk volop in de zon gereden.
Toen ik em reed (08/22) lag er in de aanloop naar de col (dus het voorstuk) wel erg veel losse kiezels op de weg, waarschijnlijk van recente straatreparaties. Maar het stuk van de col zelf hier geen last van gehad.
