Tips

  • Jeroen de Boer

    Wonderful climbing for the cyclist. Be careful on the smaller paths that there are, there can be many cyclists on busy days, and not everyone steers with certainty. Fortunately, the area is beautiful and it is also super cycling at a leisurely pace!

    Good asphalt, good cycle paths and a wonderful area for climbing. If you want a little more space on the trails, come early in the morning.

    The signpost is still an old original ANWB signpost. There is a winged wheel on top. You sometimes come across them, as a joke, at old crossroads. In Wehl and Bronckhorst they also stand.

    The Posbank is the official viewing point at the top of the Schietbergseweg (locally known as the Posbank climb). The views are (for Dutch standerd) beautiful. There's heather fields and on clear days you can look all the way into Germany and see the German 'Reichswald' and Dutch 'Montferland' hills in the distance.

    Nestled in the National Park Hoge Veluwe is the Posbank! The Posbank is a 90 metre high hill offering an unparalleled view of the reserve. In clear weather, you can see as far as 20 kilometres.

    Here is a great hilly route out of Utrecht: twotoneams.link/posbank

    Beautiful region with lots of roads to climb on your bicycle. Can be busy with other cyclists and cars on a sunny day.

    At the top of the Posbank you can enjoy the view on the terrace of the Posbank pavilion.

    It is a beautiful cycling area, where you can make enough altitude meters.

    amazing winding road with some steep sections at the top. Beautiful views from the top. Best to avoid on sunny weekend though, too much people.

    Spinning rounds over and around the Posbank, and thus making some height meters in the flat Netherlands. Beautiful nature, going in time on weekends due to crowds

    Lovely flowy climb towards viewing point on top of the Posbank. The start of the climb is not too hard but as you progress towards the Posbank it get's steeper and steeper!

    It's one of the few icons in the Netherlands when it comes to 'hills' and one can take many alternative routings in the neighborhood.
    Next to a great view and a good piece of apple pie in the restaurant on top
