Short but quite powerful! At the start the road goes steep up and diagonally to the right and looking up you see the bench and the sign high above you. That does not really motivate ;-). It's really continuous hard pedaling until you reach the curve to the left, then it quickly flattens out and... read more

Short but quite powerful! At the start the road goes steep up and diagonally to the right and looking up you see the bench and the sign high above you. That does not really motivate ;-). It's really continuous hard pedaling until you reach the curve to the left, then it quickly flattens out and at the house it's all over. All in all, a must.

When I cycled this, the meadow on the right was one big sea of poppies. Beautiful!

The road has just been tarmacked in a number of places. There is also a lot of gravel (now) so descending is not recommended.

Kort maar behoorlijk krachtig! Bij de start gaat de weg meteen steil omhoog en schuin naar rechts en naar boven kijkend zie je hoog boven je het bankje en het bord staan. Dat motiveert niet echt ;-). Het is echt doorlopend hard trappen tot je bij de bocht naar links bent, daarna wordt het snel vlakker en bij het huis is het wel over. Al met al een aanrader.

Toen ik deze fietste was het weiland rechts één grote zee van klaprozen. Prachtig!

De weg is net op een aantal plaatsen geasfalteerd. Er ligt (nu) ook veel grind dus afdalen is niet aan te raden.

Tasty calves in a beautiful setting. Really a must! Also a nice place during the Amstel Gold Race to watch the pros.

Lekkere kuitenbijter in een prachtige omgeving. Echt een aanrader! Ook een leuke plek om tijdens de Amstel Gold Race naar de profs te kijken.

Short but powerful. You cycle along a meadow and arrive at the top almost on a farmyard. I think it is a beautiful climb!

Kort maar krachtig. Je fiets langs een weiland en komt boven bijna óp een erf van een boerderij. Ik vind het een mooi klimmetje!

I just discovered it recently. Normally I took the Fromberg after the Eyserbosweg. I really liked it, a short and steep climb. It looks a bit like the Kruisberg. If you take the Karstraat after Vrakelberg straight ahead, you get a very nice and long descent where you can raise your average (which was just lowered by the Vrakelberg) again.

Ik heb hem sinds kort pas ontdekt. Normaal pakte ik na de Eyserbosweg altijd de Fromberg. Het beviel me erg goed, een lekker kort en steil klimmetje. Het heeft een klein beetje weg van de Kruisberg. Als je na de Vrakelberg rechtdoor de Karstraat neemt krijg je een hele fijne en lange afdaling waar je je gemiddelde (dat net omlaag getrokken is door de Vrakelberg) weer helemaal omhoog kan halen.

One of the hidden climbs in Limburg, some tours include it but most don't. The Vrakelbergerweg runs through the dry valley of Colmont and a lot of local cyclists come here to cycle around so they can take on a lot of climbs. With Etenaken and Ubachsberg as endpoints you can ride, climb and rest in peace.
The Vrakelberg is one of the short steep climbs you often find in Limburg. It's a real strain on the calves and you need to have a good basic condition to keep it up for hours.

Een van de verborgen klimmetjes in Limburg, een enkele toertocht neemt hem op maar de meeste niet. De Vrakelbergerweg loopt door het Droogdal van Colmont en veel lokale fietsers komen hier om "rondjes" te fietsen zodat ze snel veel klimmetjes kunnen pakken. Met Etenaken en Ubachsberg als eindpunten kun je heerlijk rustig rijden, klimmen en rusten.
De Vrakelberg is een van de korte steile klimmetjes die je veel in Limburg treft. Echte kuitenbijters en waar je veel basis conditie moet hebben om het uren vol te houden.
