    This is a round to put your watts to the test. The route is adorned by a number of large calf-biters. However, the first 35 kilometers are mild on the legs, so you have plenty of time to warm up. But don't think the run-up is as flat as a dime, because it never is in this region. The Stoepert and Slakweg are the support act for this course. Make no mistake, because all those other uncategorized bumps that don't bear a name can be quite wrong.After the first few scrambles in the Grensmaas valley, the calves are warm and the course heads towards the Heuvelland. The altimeters already sum up on the Ransdalerweg and Karstraat. A small German excursion brings you back to South Limburg territory via Orsbach. A small note to the road surface is appropriate. In Orsbach you will find a stretch of road of about three hundred meters that even makes a real Flandrien awake. So pay attention! Once you have completed this, you will cycle towards the highest peaks of the rolling Limburg landscape, enjoyment is guaranteed. Do that too, because after this the course will be set.Now the moment comes when you curse grimpeur.nl, with successively the ascent of the Schulsberg and Trintelerberg you sweat. But then you are not there yet. After the latter slope, it is recommended to keep your legs still, because as soon as you catch your breath, an alternative variant of the famous Fromberg will be served.Not unimportantly, there is another surprise waiting at the end. The insidiously steep Koulenberg puts the calves under tension for a short while. Then it is beautiful descend to Valkenburg via the Goudsberg. Time for a beer, isn't it?

    Very nice route. I did it this afternoon. Perfect if you are only familiar with the more famous hills in this area. Very much enjoyed these lesser known and very quiet roads. Thanks for sharing.
