Very nice and, as mentioned, somewhat more difficult route.

Refuelling tip: In Saint-Sauveur, before you start on the croisette, you can drive on and refuel in a small newsagent ;-) at least I could use it.

heel leuke en zoals vermeld toch wat zwaardere route.

bevoorradingstip: In Saint-Sauveur kan je voor je aan de croisette begint even doorrijden en daar in een klein krantenwinkeltje even bijtanken ;-) ik kon het in ieder geval gebruiken.

Absolutely recommended if you like going up and down all day. Those who like better self-flagellation can easily take fiertelmeers, pater and kwaremont with them.

Absolute aanrader als je houdt van heel de dag op en af gaan. Degenen die houden van de betere zelfkastijding kunnen nog makkelijk fiertelmeers, pater en kwaremont meenemen

Lovely route through the beautiful, quiet Pays des Collines. Almost the whole route is car-free. With a set of good legs, this is enjoyment! Attention, with more than 1700hm this route is quite heavy. Highly recommended!

Mooie route doorheen het prachtige, rustige Pays des Collines. Vrijwel heel de route is zo goed als autovrij. Met een set goede benen is dit genieten! Let op, met meer dan 1700hm weegt deze route vrij zwaar. Aanrader!

Very nice route, I did it on a windy, cold day which made this route extra hard. Just like the previous comment it was indeed just over 2000 altimeters. The only point of criticism I can find is that the descents are not always in the best shape. Often a lot of stones in the curves. For the rest all mountains are very well rideable, definitely a must do!

Zeer toffe route, ik heb hem gedaan op een winderige, koude dag dat maakte deze route wel extra zwaar. Net zoals de vorige commentaar was het inderdaad net iets meer dan 2000 hoogtemeters. Het enige puntje van kritiek dat ik kan vinden, is dat de afdalingen er niet altijd optimaal bij liggen. Vaak veel steentjes in de bochten. Voor de rest zijn alle bergen zeer goed berijdbaar, zeker een aanrader voor eens te doen!

Very nice route. Definitely a must for those who want to get to know the area. However, I came out just above the 2000 altimeters instead of 1739.

Heel mooie route. Zeker een aanrader voor wie de omgeving wil leren kennen. Ik kwam echter net boven de 2000 hoogtemeters uit ipv 1739.
