small road where practically no car passes, we are in a forest, the environment is thus very pleasant, on the other hand as of the foot of the rise, that rises very extremely. You have to wait until almost the top for the percentage to go down a bit. In short, one of the most difficult climbs in Be... read more

A slope that you almost can't cycle up by accident, but that you have to know is located at a picnic spot at the Semois that is as charming as it is hidden. It is advisable, however, to save a picnic until the top, because this little affair could be quite heavy on the stomach. One kilometre alone in the world on a strip of asphalt that seems to have been squashed vertically into a forest, that's how it felt to me. No frills, but still... beautiful in all its unpretentiousness. You can see the sky clearing in the distance. Les Enclaves has no foothills. Up is up. Suddenly you're out of the woods and Bouillon is somewhere below.

Een helling die je bijna niet 'per ongeluk' kan opfietsen, maar moet weten liggen, aan een even bekoorlijk als verdoken picknickplekje aan de Semois. Aan te raden valt evenwel om een eventuele picknick op te sparen tot de top, want dit ondingetje zou wel eens zwaar op de maag kunnen liggen. Eén kilometer alleen op de wereld op een strook asfalt dat verticaal in een bos lijkt te zijn gekwakt, zo voelde het voor mij. Zonder franjes, maar toch... prachtig in al haar pretentieloosheid. Je ziet de hemel openklaren in de verte. Aan uitlopers doet Les Enclaves niet mee, of toch nauwelijks. Boven is boven. Plots ben je uit het bos en ligt Bouillon ergens beneden. (waarneming op 1 juli 2021)

Recommended if you want to hurt yourself. Take 3 or 4 times the Koppenberg in a row, but without the cobblestones. From the first meters I got the rear wheel slip that is typical for such a steep piste. I did almost the entire climb standing on the pedals because I didn't see any other alternative because sitting down I was never going to get a gear around. It's a lot of suffering, but it's also important to keep up the pace because you can't recuperate except for the last 50m before the summit. Once at the top, there's a nice descent to Bouillon, passing the karting circuit, and if you look halfway across the Semois valley you have a unique view of the castle. Afterwards you're proud of yourself for having reached the top, but would you want to do it again ... Yes you will!

Aan te raden als je jezelf wil pijnigen. Neem 3 à 4 keer de Koppenberg naeen, maar dan zonder kasseien. Vanaf de eerste meters kreeg ik het achterwielslippen dat kenmerkend is voor zo'n steile puisten. Ik heb zowat de hele klim staand op de trappers gedaan omdat ik eigenlijk geen ander alternatief zag want zittend ging ik nooit een verzet rondkrijgen. Het is enorm afzien en toch is ook voldoende doseren hier belangrijk, want je kan geen meter recupereren, behalve de laatste 50m voor de top. Eens boven volgt een mooie afdaling naar Bouillon, onder andere langs het kartingcircuit, en als je halverwege naar de overkant van de Semoisvallei kijkt heb je een uniek zicht op het kasteel. Nadien ben je trots op jezelf dat je bent bovengeraakt, maar of je zoiets nog eens opnieuw zou willen doen... Ja toch!

Magnificent climb! Starts almost at the Semois and ends at the top of the plateau with a nice view as gift. No hassle with long stretches of false flat where she's swimming in the wind. The asphalt is almost perfect and since the road is only accessible for local traffic there's hardly any car traffic. Nevertheless, the road is wide enough to overtake (by your) friends. The road goes largely through the forest, shadow guaranteed. The first half of the climb feels even harder than the percentages would suggest, because first you have a long descent behind you. The transition from outside blade to inside blade is rarely more abrupt. Because of the sharp right turn at the foot you have to brake first and you can't launch yourself. Anticipation is the message.

Schitterende klim! Begint zowat aan de Semois en eindigt helemaal boven op het plateau met een mooi uitzicht als cadeau. Geen gedoe met lange uitlopers vals plat waar ze zit te zwemmen in de wind. Het asfalt is quasi perfect en aangezien de weg enkel toegankelijk is voor plaatselijk verkeer is er nauwelijks autoverkeer. Desondanks is de weg breed genoeg om je (door je) vrienden in te (laten) halen. De weg loopt grotendeels door het bos, schaduw gegarandeerd. De eerste helft voelt nog zwaarder aan dan de stijgingspercentages doen vermoeden, omdat je eerst een vrij lange afdaling achter de kiezen hebt. De overgang van buitenblad naar binnenblad is zelden bruusker. Door de vrij scherpe bocht naar rechts aan de voet moet je eerst ook nog in de remmen en kun je jezelf niet lanceren. Anticiperen is de boodschap.

Beautiful, but tough climb that starts at the bottom of the Semois, very quiet through the forest and ends at the chapel at the top.

mooie, maar stevige klim die onderaan de Semois begint, zeer rustig door bos en bovenaan eindigt aan de kapel

Beautiful challenging climb! Truly one of the toughest climbs in the area, especially because of its percentages. The climb slowly levels off as it progresses, although there is still a small pimple to conquer before the descent to Bouillon begins.

Mooie uitdagende klim! Met recht één van de zwaarste beklimmingen in de buurt, vooral door z'n stijgingspercentages. De klim vlakt wel langzaam íets af naarmate deze vordert, al is er voor de top nog een klein pukkeltje te overwinnen voor de afdaling naar Bouillon begint.

small road where practically no car passes, we are in a forest, the environment is thus very pleasant, on the other hand as of the foot of the rise, that rises very extremely. You have to wait until almost the top for the percentage to go down a bit. In short, one of the most difficult climbs in Belgium, in my opinion as hard as the Mur de Huy, or even harder.

petite route où pratiquement aucune voiture ne passe, on est dans une forêt, l'environnement est donc très agréable, par contre dès le pied de l'ascension, cela monte très fort. Il faut attendre presque le sommet pour que le pourcentage descende un petit peu. En résumé, une des côtes les plus difficiles de Belgique, à mes yeux aussi dur que le Mur de Huy, voir plus difficile

I still remember this climb very well and I can tell you it wasn't and isn't easy. During the descent you do have a nice view on the castle of Bouillon.

Ik herinner me deze klim nog zeer goed en ik kan u vertellen dat het niet gemakkelijk was en is. Je hebt tijdens de afdaling wel een mooi uitzicht op het kasteel van Bouillon.
