The Muur used to be the decision maker of the Ronde van Vlaanderen but was skipped since the 2012 edition due to a major route make-over. The Muur (Wall) was and is a monumental Flemish climb. With it's cobblestones and grades up to 20% it is also one of the harder climbs in Flanders. The climb is situated in Geraardsbergen and starts from the edges of the Dender river. It's position to the east of the Flemish Ardennes makes it a bit isolated from those other big Flemish Ardennes climbs like Paterberg, Koppenberg and Kwaremont, which are situated near Oudenaarde and the Schelde river.

One of my favourites in our low lands. If you do not exaggerate in the first part and you can manage to keep some reserve for the final and toughest part, the climb is not that hard. Especially the long take-off starting at already before the marketsquare in Geraardsbergen is magnificent. You really get that cycle-pro feeling, being in the final of the legendary Tour des Flandres.

Story by Geoff from Milton Keynes, Belgium, submitted on 21/07/2010
Was staying in a town next door, suddenly realised where I was and well, I couldnt resist doing up it. So, the climb from the town is very bit as tough as the climb itself, then onto the climb it hurts as its short but steep. The cobbles arent the tough part, its the gradient. Then on the top, stop off and admire the view across the flat countryside.

Story by Jari from Folkestone, United Kingdom, submitted on 05/01/2010
On business in Europe but with car so took my bike with me. Managed a ride in 4 different countries, last being Belgium. I only realised after booking the hotel that I would be an easy ride away from Geraardsbergen and De Muur. It was an easy start but when the road hit 20% on the pavé I had to walk the 15 meters to the Eddy Merckx memorial. Hats off to the pros!
