This is the closest 4th category climb near me (still 60k though) so I do this climb a few times a year. Although there are cobbles it isn't very difficult, the cobbles aren't to bad and it isn't steep anywhere, the only thing u should remember that there are a few points that look ... read more

This is the closest 4th category climb near me (still 60k though) so I do this climb a few times a year.
Although there are cobbles it isn't very difficult, the cobbles aren't to bad and it isn't steep anywhere, the only thing u should remember that there are a few points that look like u are at the heighest point, but only if are on a very large square u are really on the top of the climb! U should also notice that alot of cars and motorbikes go up it and that there are a few events each year that close down the climb.

Lekker stevige en tamelijk lange kasseiklim die spijtig genoeg ook door veel voertuigen omhoog gereden wordt. De kasseien liggen er oké bij en de steiltegraad hoeft geen pijn te doen mits goede dosering. Mooie uitzichten over de stad Namen en de optie voor snelle afdalingen aan de andere kant van de citadel.

Ik vind dit echt een aanrader. De kasseien rijden beter dan menig asfaltweg in Belgie... De uitzichten zijn schitterend en het lusje waarbij je eerst door de poort en daarna erover gaat is natuurlijk weergaloos. Echt een schitterende klim die je ook gewoon rustig omhoog kunt rijden om te genieten. Via de Avenue Jean 1er kun je ook heerlijk afdalen op glad asfalt!

Eén van mijn favoriete hellingen van het land... als je niet te veel verkeer treft. Op een mooie dag kunnen de auto's wat gaan storen.

Gereden in de Tour de Namur, eigenlijk een onmisbare klim als je het centrum van Namen aandoet. Mooie uitzichten en niet te slechte kasseitjes. Wel druk qua verkeer.

De beklimming heeft een prachtig uitzicht over Namen en klimt zeer geleidelijk over kasseien die er zeer goed bij liggen.

montée "mythique" avec un belle route (parfois en pavés mais de très bonne qualité. Chouette passage avec un petit pont. Belle vue sur la Meuse et la Sambre.
