Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
The toughest climb around Nijmegen, although the difference with the nearby Nieuwe Holleweg is not very big. The Oude Holleweg, however, starts a lot harder. If you turn right on the klinkerweg, the slope immediately increases to a good 10 ％. So take it easy in Beek, otherwise you will break down on the first few hundred meters.
To start (relatively) fresh on the Oude Holleweg, you can also take the Van der Veurweg in Beek and continue climbing up to the Nieuwe Holleweg. At the small roundabout, turn right and descend a few hundred meters - giving you time to relax. Then squeeze the brakes firmly and take the sharp, almost right-angled bend to the left onto Oude Holleweg. You immediately start on the steepest part of the climb, but without the difficult run-up through Beek, where you secretly hit percentages of 4 to 5 percent.
