Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
With a maximum slope of 'only' ten percent, the Eikenberg looks pretty plain on paper, but the cobblestone stretch stretches. There are small pieces of asphalt on the side of the road, offering a short break to drivers who like it a little quieter. The Eikenberg climb may not be as well known as the Oude Kwaremont or the Paterberg, but plays an important role in the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad as well as the Flanders Tour.

The Eikenberg is a slope and street in Maarke, a village in the Flemish Ardennes in the Belgian province of East Flanders. The cobblestones on the Eikenberg have been protected as a monument since 1995. The road climbs from the Maarkebeek and the Maarkeweg (N457) to the hill Kerselareberg (N8). To the west lies Ladeuze, to the east the Kapelleberg. The mountain was already 42x part of the Tour of Flanders.
