Nice and firm tour with quite a few altimeters, but without real 'bombs'. Here and there bad road surface on quiet roads, but the climbs were generally good: the Côte de Niaster I did not know yet and I found particularly beautiful. Route very quiet, few cyclists or motorbikes encountered despite the beautiful weather. Note: the bridge at the foot of the climb https://climbfinder.com/nl/beklimmingen/croix-du-mont-rue-de-la-brassine was swept away (12 June 2022), so I had to skip this climb. Instead, I descended via Thier d'Ozo from Izier (after having climbed up to Iziers from the destroyed bridge).

Mooie en stevige tocht met aardig wat hoogtemeters, maar zonder echte 'bommetjes'. Hier en daar slecht wegdek op rustige weggetjes, maar de klimmen waren over het algemeen prima: de Côte de Niaster kende ik nog niet en vond ik vooral erg mooi. Route erg rustig, weinig fietsers of motoren tegengekomen ondanks het mooie weer. Let op: de brug aan de voet van de klim https://climbfinder.com/nl/beklimmingen/croix-du-mont-rue-de-la-brassine was weggeslagen (12 juni 2022), en deze klim moest ik daarom noodgedwongen overslaan. Ben in plaats daarvan via Thier d'Ozo afgedaald vanuit Izier (na omhoog geklommen te zijn naar Iziers vanaf de weggeslagen brug).

Beautiful route along a lesser-known part of the Ardennes. Almost all the roads are without cars, ideal for the cycling tourist. Only in the last part(s) the roads are typically Ardennes, asphalt hardly to be found, pebbles for the taking and big holes in the road. But if you don't mind, this route is pure enjoyment. I added Sur le Thier as a warm-up, which immediately set the legs on fire. Not the best idea :)

Mooie route langs een minder bekend stukje Ardennen. Bijna volledige autoluwe wegen, ideaal voor de wielertoerist. Enkel bij het laatste stuk(je) zijn de wegen typisch Ardeens, asfalt nauwelijks te bespeuren, kiezeltjes voor het oprapen en flinke gaten in de weg. Maar als je je hier niet druk in maakt, is deze route puur genieten. Ik heb er als opwarmer Sur le Thier aan toegevoegd, waardoor de benen meteen in brand stonden. Niet het beste idee :)

Parked the car at the carpool and left.
Beautiful roads without cars and we only met one fellow cyclist. Sometimes good road surface, sometimes familiar Walloon.
Some tough climbs!

Auto op de carpool plaats geparkeerd en vertrokken.
Prachtige autoluwe wegen en ook maar een enkele medefietser tegen gekomen. Soms prima wegdek, soms vertrouwd waals.
Paar pittige klimmetjes erbij!
