Story by KnightBiker from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, submitted on 23/09/2012
I climbed the beyrede from the south side - starting at the remnants of a city wall. gradient pitches quickly while passing a small church a few 100 meters further. (i guess above 12 percent for the beginning)
Do not turn to Jumet, but turn right at the first crossing after you have left the village. after that the gradient mellows and the road is small and in the trees, the gradient goes up an down a little and until halfway it''s not very difficult. the second half is harder and steeper, there is a farm or two, there are free ranging cows and a lot of cow deposits. with the top insight the gradient goes down and the top self is a crossing of walking routes and other paths (i think there was a hotel or something)
The Decent is very steep - it felt a little like descending the Zoncolan (slightly less but still very nasty decending) there are rocks, and one or two holes and two strechtes of unpaved road otherwise for such a small road it''s not that bad but desent carefully and climbing it the other way around will be tricky because of it''s steepness and the +- 200 meters of missing pavement.
