So now I see for the first time that the Ruiterberg South 'lighter' would be than the mountain from the north. It doesn't feel that way, because from this side you have to make a sharp turn from the bike path and start the climb almost from standstill (at least in crowded conditions).... read more

Scenic climb where you also feel the incline anyway. You drive up through the forest. There are partly younger trees on either side, which gives a somewhat more spatial effect. Just before the highest point, you pass a beautiful gatehouse. The road is (almost) car-free so it is nice and quiet.

Landschappelijk mooie klim waarbij je ook de helling toch wel voelt. Je rijdt door het bos naar boven. Deels zijn aan weerszijden jongere boompjes wat een wat meer ruimtelijk effect geeft. Vlak voor het hoogste punt kom je langs een fraai poortgebouw. De weg is (vrijwel) autovrij dus heerlijk rustig.

So now I see for the first time that the Ruiterberg South 'lighter' would be than the mountain from the north. It doesn't feel that way, because from this side you have to make a sharp turn from the bike path and start the climb almost from standstill (at least in crowded conditions). Not steep, but long enough to get your heart rate up if you pedal hard. Recovering is very well possible in the descent, from both sides it is a nice downhill.

Ik zie dus nu pas voor het eerst dat de Ruiterberg Zuid 'lichter' zou zijn dan de berg vanuit het noorden. Dat voelt niet zo, omdat je vanaf deze kant een scherpe bocht moet maken vanaf het fietspad en bijna vanuit stilstand (bij drukte althans wel) aan de klim begint. Niet steil, maar wel lang genoeg om de hartslag omhoog te jagen als je flink doortrapt. Herstellen kan heel goed in de afdaling, vanaf beide kanten is het fijn dalen.
