The Cauberg is about 1200m (0.745 mi) long at about av. 6 %. The steepest part, about half way, is at 13%. Not at all the heaviest climb in Limburg.

However, it's the most famous climb of the entire Netherlands. That's because it's often included in major cycling events. The Cauberg was included in 5 World Championships, including the 2012 Edition of the World Championships road cycling. And since 2003 it's the finish of the Amstel Gold Race. Even the Tour de France included the Cauberg in one of the stages. It's a nice road that turns uphill in an elegant way, starting from the center of Valkenburg through the forest. The bridge across the Cauberg gives the spectators a beautiful view of the cyclists from above.

Heb hem gereden op 21/05/2012, tijdens een trip in Nederlands Limburg. Een aangenaam klimmetje, mooie baan, maar absoluut niet zwaar.

Deze klim heb ik gereden tijdens de WK toertocht van 2012. Te midden tussen de echte profs die het parcours aan het verkennen waren ben ik hier met mijn schoonpa ( 80 jaar !) naar boven gereden. Het viel al met al nog goed mee ... of was het door de euforie en de sfeer van het WK dat ik zo gemakkelijk naar boven gereden ben ? We gaan er zeker nog eens naar toe. Mooie streek.
