Lovely quiet cycling there over good tarmac. Not very challenging as far as climbing is concerned, until you meet the wall without any clear prior notice. It is very short, but also very steep.... read more

Lovely quiet cycling there over good tarmac.
Not very challenging as far as climbing is concerned, until you meet the wall without any clear prior notice.
It is very short, but also very steep.

Heerlijk rustig fietsen daar over goed asfalt.
Niet heel uitdagend wat klimmen betreft, totdat je zonder heel duidelijke vooraankondiging de muur ontmoet.
Die is heel kort, maar ook heel steil.

Between the violence of all the long climbs in the area, this is a climb of nothing... But beware, the wall below Means is really mean steep. Perhaps this is the steepest part of the 'round lake': https://climbfinder.com/nl/routes/rondom-het-meer-van-serre-poncon

A short piece of climbing where you should not be mistaken :-)

Tussen het geweld van alle lange beklimmingen in de buurt is dit een klim van niets... maar pas op, de muur onder Means is echt gemeen steil. Misschien is dit wel het steilstje stukje van het 'rondje meer': https://climbfinder.com/nl/routes/rondom-het-meer-van-serre-poncon

Een kort stuk klimmen waar je je niet op moet verkijken :-)
