Tough ride with, for me, a large number of unfamiliar climbs, some of which are quite tough with percentages above 15%. Beautiful scenery to cycle through, the gravel certainly does not bother. Highly recommended and looks like fun in reverse too

Stevig ritje met, voor mij, een groot aantal onbekende klimmen waarvan enkele toch wel erg pittig zijn met percentages boven de 15%. Prachtige omgeving om door te fietsen, de gravel stoort zeker niet. Een aanrader en lijkt me in omgekeerde richting ook wel leuk

Lovely route on mostly quiet little roads and sometimes cycle paths and car-free roads. No big names at the climbs but that's why there's a good chance that even on a nice summer's day you'll be cycling alone here. The gravel strips are good for cycling, only the one near Mamelis is so rough that walking a few metres is an option.

Heerlijke route over veelal rustige kleine weggetjes en soms fietspaden en autovrije weggetjes. Geen grote namen bij de klimmen maar daarom is de kans groot dat je zelfs op een mooie zomerdag hier alleen fietst. De gravelstroken zijn goed te fietsen, alleen die bij Mamelis is dusdanig grof dat enkele meters lopen een optie is.

Nice route.
There are some gravel strips in it. The first one is easy to avoid. The second is five meter steps. The one at the
Drielandenpunt is not rideable with a racing bike in bad weather, and the one after is not really rideable either. With nice weather and dry roads this is a beautiful route.

Mooie route.
Er zitten wel een aantal gravelstroken in. De eerste is makkelijk te mijden. De tweede is vijf meter stappen. Die aan het
Drielandenpunt is bij slecht weer met een racefiets niet berijdbaar en die erna eigenlijk ook niet. Bij mooi weer en droogwegdek is dit een mooie route.

Fantastic route through a beautiful, calm environment. The few unpaved stretches should not scare you. Provided the weather is dry, these are great for cycling. Highly recommended!

Fantastische route door een prachtige, kalme omgeving. De enkele onverharde stroken mogen je niet afschrikken. Mits droog weer zijn deze prima te fietsen. Aanrader!
