A slope that lies between the ring road and a rural area. Easy to reach via the cycle highway along the A12. As soon as you drive left in front of the tunnel, you realise that you are on a slope.

Een helling die tussen de ring en een landelijk gebied ligt. Makkelijk te bereiken via de fietssnelweg langs de A12. Van zodra je links voor de tunnel rijdt, heb je pas door dat je op een helling zit.

Car-free and good tarmac. If you turn left before the tunnel, you immediately see that the track rises steeper. Obviously not a col, but one of the nicer and longer kouters.

Autoluw én goeie asfalt. Als je voor het tunneltje linksaf gaat, zie je meteen dat de baan steiler omhoog gaat. Uiteraard geen col, maar wel een van de leukere en langere kouters.

Nice climb, not too long but steep enough to train your calves.
You can combine it with a few heavy cobblestone sections that are in the neighbourhood.

Leuke beklimming, niet te lang maar wel stijl genoeg om de kuitjes te trainen.
Je kan deze combineren met een paar zware kasseistroken die in de buurt liggen.
