For me and many others the toughest side of the Ruidenberg in Koekelare. When you're at the foot of this side, you see a real wall looming up right in front of you. It looks a bit like the Paterberg in Kluisbergen, but on a much smaller scale of course, without all that super steep stuff and cobblestones. At first it goes uphill false flat, but then you get to the real part of the slope which is about 500 meters. It goes then all the time against the 4 / 5 to 6.4 percent upwards. Here you can test each other on group training and ride out of the wheel. It is really a very difficult climb to do at high speed, so I always fall silent when I am almost at the top. If you want to get a few more altimeters you can take the right and then immediately left, but that is actually a bit redundant. The absolute tearjerker in the region, without a doubt. Many youth and provincial races are also organized here and often take this tricky side. You should definitely do it if you're a famous cycling fan to test your legs.

Voor mij en vele anderen de zwaarste kant van de Ruidenberg in Koekelare. Wanneer je al aan de voet staat van deze kant staat, zie je recht voor je een echte muur opdoemen. Het lijkt net een beetje op de Paterberg in Kluisbergen, maar dan op veel kleinere schaal natuurlijk, zonder al dat supersteile gedoe en die kasseien. Het gaat eerst nog vals plat omhoog maar dan kom je op het echte stuk van de helling die zo'n 500 meter is. Het gaat dan heletijd tegen de 4 / 5 tot zelf 6.4 procent omhoog. Hier kan je op groepstraining elkaar eens goed testen en uit het wiel rijden. Het is echt een zeer lastige beklimming voor aan een hoge snelheid te doen, daardoor val ik altijd stil wanneer ik bijna op de top ben. Als je nog een paar hoogtemeters wil pakken kan je nog de bocht naar rechts en dan meteen links nemen, maar dat is eigenlijk een beetje overbodig. De absolute tranentrekker in de regio, zonder twijfel. Hier worden ook veel jeugd- en provinciale koersen georganiseerd en nemen deze lastige kant heel vaak. Moet je absoluut doen als je een befaamde wielerliefhebber bent om de benen eens goed te testen.
