Eddy Merckx won his last cycle race in our hometown Ruien (Kluisbergen). This route was partly created by JOWAN in the 90s and is still the most popular theme route of the Province of East Flanders. You never leave the village borders of Kluisbergen.
The route combines nearly all slopes of the Tour of Flanders within the village of Kluisbergen: Old Kwaremont, Paterberg the Kluisberg and Hotond. A solid route, ideal for a short but challenging workout.
