“Unknown is unloved" and sadly, that is the fate of this magnificent hill, Foreest in Schorisse. The fact that Foreest has only been ridden four times in the history of the Tour of Flanders no doubt has something to do with it. We first discovered the hill during a training ride in the company of former world champion mountainbiker, Filip Meirhaeghe who lives in Schorisse. We were instantly taken. Even if the climb is just 700m long, it feels for a moment like you’re in the Ardennes thanks to the peace and quiet that surrounds it. Enjoy!
