Many a cyclist, like me, rides through the gorge of the Guil with the view on the l'Izoard or Agnel. And with that we never pay attention to a turn to nowhere. Nothing? 18 hairpins over a distance of less than 3 km and with an altitude of 330 meters, this little climb over asphalt can't exactly be called 'nothing'. And really unique! Those 18 bends is handy to know because if you want to count them during the climb you will soon lose count. Puffing and pulling on your steering wheel on a murderous south facing slope with hardly any shade. And very steep. Every meter varying from 5 to 16 meters. So no time to count the turns, just hope you don't fall over when reaching for your water bottle. Perfect interval training for the early morning when it's still nice and cool and you want to be back around lunch time.
Tip: on the other side of this climb you can also add the climb to Bramousse. Less steep with more shadow and spectacular view on the just cycled road to Escoyères.

Menig wielrenner, en zoals ik, rijdt door de kloof van de Guil met de blik op de l’Izoard of Agnel. En daarmee hebben we nooit oog voor een afslag naar niks. Niks? 18 haarspeldbochten over een afstand van nog geen 3 km en met een hoogteoverbrugging van 330 meter is dit klimmetje over asfalt niet bepaald ‘niks’ te noemen. En echt uniek! Die 18 bochten is wel handig om te weten want als je ze wil tellen tijdens de klim dan raak je snel de tel kwijt. Puffend en trekkend aan je stuur op een moordende zuidhelling met nauwelijks schaduw. En loei steil. Elke meter variërend van 5% tot 16%. Dus geen tijd om die bochten te tellen, maar hopen dat je niet omvalt als je naar je bidon grijpt. Perfecte intervaltraining voor in de vroege ochtend als het nog lekker koel is en rond lunchtijd weer terug wilt zijn.
Tip: aan de overkant van deze klim kun je ook de klim naar Bramousse eraan vastplakken. Minder steil met meer schaduw en spectaculair zicht op het zojuist gefietste weggetje naar Escoyères.
