This ride is categorised as an easy ride, but I must admit that it has a few climbs in it, that might make some people say it is maybe more of a medium type of ride. Well, only for you to decide.
The starting point is in Gronsveld and is near a nice parking spot where you can leave your car. Within the first kilometer from the start there is a short technical climb that unfortunately is needed to get you on to the nice gravel roads on top of Riesenberg / Kleinberg. After this the remaining route is much easier and excellent suited to gravel bikes.
As I said, there is a long double climb close to Gulpen that is part of this route. At the foot of the Gulperberg the route goes left and takes you on to a 1km long climb with a 5% average gradient. After this there is a short 500m downhill to catch your breath again, to be followed by a 1.5km climb of around 6% gradient. A little further down this route, you’ll be presented with a long downhill that has a little rocky start, followed by the last real climb in this route that goes into double digits for a short part.
Have fun and let me know what you think of this route.
