In 2013, Rogier and Martijn started the Dutch website “klimtijd.nl” as a hobby project. In 2020, after going global, the project was renamed to climbfinder.com, and Leon and Henrico joined the team. Now, the website is available in multiple languages and contains information about climbs all over Europe.
We have built climbfinder.com to share our mutual love and knowledge about Alpine cycling cols, typical Belgium walls, and all other types of climbs. Our mission is for people to discover new climbs and routes using climbfinder: We want climbfinder.com to be the key to unlock the many hidden gems that deserve to be climbed!
Rogier (editor & photography)
Rogier lives in the French Alps and in his vocabulary anything that involves less than 10 kilometers of steepness doesn't deserve to be called a “climb”. Climbing with Rogier means he'll talk your ear off and overload you with all sorts of useless questions and facts, while in the meantime you're desperately gasping for breath.
Martijn lives in the Netherlands and has a preference for shorter climbs in the Netherlands and Belgium. If his legs were as strong as his stories, we would be dealing with the new Eddy Merckx.
Henrico knows every climb in the Netherlands (if any) like the back of his hand. But in his dreams, he is cycling up majestic cols starting from subtropical beaches. His actual cycling achievements can be compared to his humor: inimitable. So out of bounds, we've decided to just laugh about it.
Leon (climbs & cycling route artist)
Even though Leon also lives in the Netherlands, he prefers to cycle in Belgium. His biggest annoyance? A no entrance sign at the bottom of an obscure and steep goat path. Mention any name of any cobblestone climb in his presence, and you'll have a full evening worth of entertainment.
