A regular feature for anyone cycling along the new waterway. As others have said, it's especially nice if you go up a few times, but for a break with a view it's a great spot.

Een vast onderdeel voor iedereen die langs de nieuwe waterweg een rondje fietst. Zoals anderen aangeven, vooral leuk als je een paar keer omhoog gaat, maar voor een pauze moment met uitzicht is het een prima spot.

A modest hill in a special setting. For the punchers a nice snack with a beautiful view over the Nieuwe Waterweg and the stormvloedkering. It can be very windy here, which makes both the climb and the descent more challenging but also more dangerous.

Een bescheiden heuveltje in een bijzondere omgeving. Voor de punchers een leuke versnapering met fraai uitzicht over de Nieuwe Waterweg en de stormvloedkering. Het kan hier overigens hard waaien, dat maakt zowel de klim als de afdaling uitdagender doch gevaarlijker.

Especially fun to drive a few laps on it. If that's what you're planning, you should definitely detour for it. But, for a single climb you don't have to pass it

Vooral leuk om er een aantal rondjes over heen te rijden. Als je dat van plan bent, moet je er zeker voor om. Maar, voor een enkele beklimming hoef je er niet langs

But a small climb of course, and a headwind along the Nieuwe Waterweg is harder, but still fun. Some cyclists cycle in circles to gain some altitude. At the top is a viewpoint over the Maeslantkering.

Maar een klein klimmetje natuurlijk, en wind tegen langs de Nieuwe Waterweg is zwaarder, maar toch leuk. Sommige fietsers rijden hier rondjes om toch maar wat hoogtemeters te maken. Boven is een uitzichtpunt over de Maeslantkering.

It goes up and ff good push and you're up, but because we don't have that much difference in height here along the coast, this pimple is climbed a lot.

Het loopt omhoog en ff goed aanzetten en je bent boven, maar omdat wij niet zoveel hoogteverschil hebben hier langs de kust wordt dit pukkeltje veel beklommen .
