Climb the Bosberg
Another Iconic Belgie Hill – literally meaning Forest Hill. Maybe Forest Hell would be more appropriate. Partially paved, partial cobbles in the steep upper parts of the hill mean the Bosberg bites, and bites hard.
The Bosberg was the final climb in the Tour of Flanders from 1973 to 2011. To add insult to injury the Bosberg was usually proceeded by Muur van Geraardsbergen when it featured in the Tour of Flanders. Edwig Van Hooydonck immortalized the climb by making decisive attacks on the Bosberg twice before soloing to the finish in 1989 and 1991.
