After the Ovifat from Longfaye, I drove up here at the level of Sourbrodt. What immediately stands out: the asphalt is brand new, with a good cycle lane. At the moment everything is not quite finished yet, but because of this bicycle lane that has been built, the traffic on the road is much less intense. As far as I am concerned, this really makes the road a must to take.

Na de Ovifat vanuit Longfaye ben ik hier ter hoogte van Sourbrodt opgereden. Wat meteen opvalt: Het asfalt is fonkelnieuw, met een goede fietsstrook. Momenteel is nog niet helemaal alles af, maar door dit fietspad wat aangelegd is, is de drukte op de weg veel minder heftig aanwezig. Wat mij betreft is de weg hierdoor echt een aanrader om mee te pakken.

A long climb that makes itself felt by its length. From the reservoir, the road winds nicely through the greenery and uphill. Then a short descent and along the church it goes up again. The road stays in the built-up area for a long time, but because most of it is detached houses, it is still quite green and sometimes there are some nice curves in the road. Finally, a slight curve and then you soon see the highest point in front of you. Nice as a climb, one star extra for the highest point in Belgium.

NB: In April 2022, the road after the Signal de Botrange was completely closed (so it was nice and quiet cycling). To continue towards Eupen, you can descend again and then turn right at the Naturparkzentrum (at the zebra crossing). The road becomes a good gravel road (watch out for potholes), runs through a beautiful area and joins the road from Malmedy. Turn right here for Eupen.

Een lange klim die zich laat voelen door de lengte. Vanaf het stuwmeer slingert de weg leuk door het groen en best aardig omhoog. Daarna even een kleine afdaling en langs de kerk gaat het weer omhoog. De weg blijft lang in de bebouwde kom maar omdat het meestal vrijstaande huizen zijn is het toch behoorlijk groen en soms zijn er aardige slingers in de weg. dat verandert als je het bos in gaat: de weg wordt steiler en loopt in één rechte streep naar boven. Uiteindelijk een lichte bocht en dan zie je al snel het hoogste punt voor je liggen. Als klim zeker aardig, voor het hoogste punt van België een ster extra.

NB: In april 2022 was de weg na de Signal de Botrange volledig afgezet (het was dus wel heerlijk rustig fietsen). Om door te rijden richting Eupen kan je weer afdalen en dan bij het Naturparkzentrum naar rechts (bij het zebrapad). De weg wordt verderop een goede gravelweg (wel opletten voor kuilen), loopt door een prachtig gebied en komt uit op de weg vanuit Malmedy. Hier naar rechts gaan voor Eupen.

Magnificent and long climb that can be done with power, the landscapes alone are worth the detour.

Magnifique et longue montée qui peut se faire en puissance, les paysages à eux seuls valent le détour.
