    Is Vaals flat? No, you can call this ride from Vaals a climbing adventure. Not about known, but about unknown climbs. This route is atypical for many who come to Limburg to cycle. You leave from the parking lot of Landal in Vaals and head towards Germany. With 95 kilometers and more than a thousand vertical meters in front of the wheels, you are 'fix und fertig' when you see the top of the Vaalserberg looming at the end. Fortunately, you don't have to wear it anymore ...Immediately after the start you will pass the German border and the hunt for altimeters starts. The gradients of the Schneebergweg and Schlangenweg raise the heart rate and the legs warm. But these slopes are not quite smooth, because the road surface at our eastern neighbors is not of the same “premium” quality as we are used to on our side of the border. A little air from the tires is recommended for this ride.Lower tire pressure certainly makes the Heyder Feldweg a lot more comfortable. This is a beautiful piece of Strade Bianche in Germany. Only the Italian cypress trees are missing. The semi-paved strip is only nine hundred meters long, so you will be in no time at all on this picturesque path. Back to Dutch soil!The course is made hard here by a number of short unknown climbs in the Parkstad region. Beyond the gates of Erenstein Castle, the short but tough Toupsberg is the first to arrive. The climb of only six hundred meters is a real calf-biter. A few kilometers further in the atmospheric Rimburg, your calves will sour on the Hoolgrub and Molenenweg climbs. For the enthusiast: Rimburg is an excellent place to stop with coffee and pie!Halfway along the route you cycle on rolling roads, the predecessors of the Heuvelland. Here you cycle adagio, quietly and above all enjoying the wide surroundings. Take advantage of it while you can, because after the climb of Nagelbeek the false flat, sloping roads change back to hills.The last kilometers take you back to the Parkstad region, where the climb of Imstenrade hidden in the forest is the most challenging hurdle. You are back in Vaals, where it started almost a hundred kilometers earlier. Time to put your feet up and treat yourself to a well-deserved snack!

    With great pleasure I drove this route on 15/8/21. I have linked this route to another route in this collection, namely "Tom Dumoulin Bike Park, Geulle, Sittard" and turned it into a nice daytime activity. I did adjust the start/finish and moved it to a more logical start/finish in the northern part of these routes. As indicated, there are some parts of lesser quality ground (sometimes even bad), but on the other hand, you come on very nice back roads. Fantastic! Thanks for sharing!
