I ended up with 1600 altimeters; I think that the intermediate sections are not counted in the route data;

ik kwam uit op 1600 hoogtemeters; ik denk dat de tussenstukken niet meegeteld worden in de gegevens van de route;

Nice route along mainly quiet roads;
- The stretch towards Ninove has little added value and is nothing compared to the rest of the route;
- Alongside the Dender you have to take a small road to the left to Grimminge, but this is in a bad state and actually closed; better take the next small road 200 meters further on
- Between Pijpketel and Gapenberg you choose for a road N42C, with a sad bicycle path; better cross N42C direction Steenhuize, 2km, then right at the castle and right into Krommestraat. This way you have a nice extra climb between the fields, to get back on N42C and get back on track.

Mooie route langs voornamelijk rustige wegen;
- Stuk richting Ninove heeft weinig meerwaarde, en valt in het niets met de rest van de route;
- Langs Dender moet je baantje naar links naar Grimminge, dit ligt echter in erbarmelijke staat en is eigenlijk afgesloten; beter volgende baantje nemen 200 meter verder
- Tussen Pijpketel en Gapenberg wordt gekozen voor steenweg N42C, met triestig fietspad; beter N42C oversteken richting Steenhuize, 2km, dan aan kasteel rechts en rechts de Krommestraat. Zo heb je nog een mooie extra klim(metje) tussen de velden, om terug op N42C te komen en terug op parcours te zitten

Thanks for the good feedback! The stretch of cycle path between the Dender and Grimminge has been replaced by a path with better road surface and also the stretch between the Pijpketel and Gapenberg now goes over nicer roads.

dank voor de goede feedback! Het stukje fietspad tussen de Dender en Grimminge is vervangen door een pad met beter wegdek en ook het stukje route tussen de Pijpketel en Gapenberg gaat nu over leukere wegen.
