This is a beautiful route through the country of Hervé. The name 'hell' is perhaps a bit exaggerated and not well chosen. After all, in the cycling world, you mainly refer to a hell when there is an overload of bad cobbled sections.
This route is not very difficult. The altimeters remain limited under 2,000. And in terms of heavy and therefore especially steep climbs, you mainly count the Rue Tesny and the Haute Folie as the troublemaker. The other climbs are very doable and not too heavy. Here and there you come across a busy road, but you can't blame the course builders for that because it is impossible to avoid them. Nevertheless, a must, but a 'hell' it is not.

Dit is een mooie route doorheen het land van Hervé. De naam 'hel' is misschien wat overdreven en niet goed gekozen. Want in de wielerwereld verwijs je toch vooral naar een hel als er sprake is van een overload aan slechte kasseistroken.
Superzwaar is deze route niet. De hoogtemeters blijven beperkt onder de 2.000. En qua zware en dus vooral steile klimmetjes tel je vooral de Rue Tesny en de Haute Folie als scherprechter. De andere beklimmingen zijn zeer goed te doen en niet al te zwaar. Hier en daar kom je wel op een drukke weg, maar dat kan je de parcoursbouwers niet verwijten, want het is onmogelijk om deze te ontwijken. Desalniettemin een aanrader, maar een 'hel' is het niet.

Beautiful route with many very steep climbs. Combination of climbs, rivers and beautiful land of Hervé nice mix. Start from NL 🇳🇱 is handy

Prachtige route met veel erg venijnige klimmetjes. Combinatie klimmen, riviertjes en prachtige land van Hervé mooie mix. Start vanuit NL 🇳🇱 is handig

This trip through the land of Herve is beautiful.
The land of Herve is located in the blue Ardennes.
The blue Ardennes owes its name to the numerous rivers and streams.
Really recommend this trip with numerous climbs.
This trip is really a hell.

Deze tocht door het land van Herve is mooi.
Het land van Herve ligt in de blauwe ardennen.
De blauwe ardennen dankt zijn naam aan de tal van rivieren en beekjes.
Echt een aanrader deze tocht met tal van beklimmingen.
Deze tocht is echt een hel.
