Klimt best toch al goed omhoog alvorens je het bekende gedeelte opdraait. In het centrum van kemmel wel druk in het weekend.

Actually, I didn't come from Kemmel... But the cobbled sector is worth the effort and we are almost at a stop in this nice climb

En réalité , je ne suis pas venu de Kemmel… Mais le secteur pavé vaut le coup et on est presque à l'arrêt dans cette chouette montée

The real climbing of the Kemmelberg from the idyllic Heuvelland. A first portion of cobblestones you get already in the village center of Heuvelland. Then the road changes back to normal asphalt. The road starts to climb more and more. In the forest you take a right turn and the 'real' cobblestone climb starts. In the beginning still doable. Once you get to the left it gets really steep and you have to crawl to the top.

De échte beklimming van de Kemmelberg vanuit het idyllische Heuvelland. Een eerste portie kasseien krijg je al in de dorpskom van Heuvelland. Dan gaat de weg terug op normaal asfalt over. De weg begint daar zachtjes aan meer en meer te stijgen. In het bos wacht je de afslag rechtsaf en begint de ‘echte’ kasseiklim. In het begin nog doenbaar. Eens je aan de bocht naar links komt wordt het écht steil en is het kruipen tot boven.

The iconic Kemmelberg. You can see it from far away. The cobbles are relatively good, with a good pace you'll get to the top fairly quickly. Try not to rush in the first part, because the last 20 meters are very steep. This climb starts in the village of Kemmel, but is also fun to do from the Gremmerslinde. Then you climb up through the forest and you come out at the foot of the cobblestones.

De iconische Kemmelberg. Je ziet hem al van ver liggen. De kasseien liggen relatief goed, met een goed tempo geraak je redelijk vlot boven. Probeer kruit niet te verschieten in het eerste deel, want de laatste 20 meter zijn heel steil. Deze beklimming start in het dorpje Kemmel, maar is ook leuk om te doen vanaf de Gremmerslinde. Dan klim je naar boven door het bos en kom je aan de voet van de kasseien uit.

The most recognizable and herosche side of the Kemmel... Nice run from in Kemmel, steep last 500 meters to the top on the infamous cobblestones!

De meest herkenbare en herosche zijde van de Kemmel... Mooie aanloop van in Kemmel, steile laatste 500 meter naar de top op de beruchte kasseien!
