Stories, information and comments from Oude Kwaremont climbers
Story by Stefan Van den Steen from , Belgium, submitted on 28/07/2009
One of the most famous climbs in Flanders. Part of Tour of Flanders. First part is quite flat and good surface. Most difficult part is the first section with cobblestones. There are quite some gaps between the separate stones...When arriving at the centre (with the church), most difficult part is over but you still have 1 km to go on the cobblestones
