Personally I find this the most difficult of the 3/4 climbs. It flattens nowhere so your legs are severely tested. Also start again at the beginning and don't fall still. Steepest climb in the region Drenthe/Overijssel.... read more

Saturday 24 September 2022 started in Vollenhove and from there via Giethoorn and Ruinen to the VAM mountain. Back to Vollenhove via Wijster, Dwingeloo, Havelterberg , Giethoorn. A nice lap of almost 120 km (incl. the kilometres on the VAM mountain where you can indulge in some short, steep climbing). First up is the Ronde van Drenthepad, the original climb that used to be banned. Recognisable by the older asphalt. Apart from our group of six, only a few other cyclists. Very quiet therefore. Done all four climbs once. In succession, that's still spicy.
On top of the mountain a nice unmanned pavilion with coffee machine and information about Drenthe landscape and the VAM mountain.

Zaterdag 24 september 2022 gestart in Vollenhove en vandaar via Giethoorn en Ruinen naar de VAM-berg. Terug naar Vollenhove via Wijster, Dwingeloo, Havelterberg , Giethoorn. Een mooi rondje van bijna 120 km (incl. de kilometers op de VAM-berg waar je je even uit kan leven op het korte, heftige klimwerk). Als eerste het Ronde van Drenthepad, de originele beklimming die vroeger verboden was. Herkenbaar aan het oudere asfalt. Buiten ons groepje van zes slechts enkele andere fietsers. Erg rustig dus. Alle vier de beklimmingen eenmaal gedaan. Achter elkaar is dat toch pittig.
Bovenop de berg een leuk onbemand paviljoentje met koffieautomaat en informatie over Drents landschap en de VAM-berg.

The heaviest of the 4. It's not long but it's right into the double digits and you don't feel like you're going under 10%. My navigation even indicated 19% for a few metres. This was one for the small mill.

De zwaarste van de 4. Hij is niet lang maar het is gelijk in de dubbele cijfers beginnen en voor je gevoel kom je niet onder de 10%. Mijn navigatie gaf zelfs even 19% aan voor een paar meter. Dit was er 1 voor de kleine molen.

Beautiful "climbingpark" where you can do some nice loops on the different parts of the vamberg. Nice to visit if you are in Drenthe.

Prachtig "klimpark" waar je een paar mooie loops kunt doen op de verschillende delen van de vam berg. Leuk om langs te gaan als je in Drenthe bent.

Persoonlijk vind ik dit de moeilijkste van de 3/4 beklimmingen. Hij vlakt nergens af waardoor je benen flink getest worden. Ook weer aanzetten aan het begin en vervolgens niet stil te vallen. Steilste klim in omgeving Drenthe/Overijssel.

I was there last November, I think on the first day the course was renewed. There are now possibilities to ride with MTB and road bike on and around the hill. There are different loops possible, I was able to ride around there for an hour that day with different combinations of slopes and descents and course on and around the hill. Both cobblestones and steep slopes as winding roads.

Ik was er vorig jaar november, volgens mij op de eerste dag dat het parcours vernieuwd was. Er zijn nu mogelijkheden om met MTB en racefiets op en rond de heuvel te rijden. Er zijn verschillende lussen mogelijk, ik heb die dag wel een uur daar rond kunnen rijden met verschillende combinaties van hellingen en afdalingen en parcours op en rondom de bult. Zowel kasseien als steile hellingen als bochtige wegen.
