Berg ten Houte is our newest cobbled climb in Flanders. This tough formerly paved climb was included 9 times in the Ronde van Vlaanderen between 1982 and 1990 and also part of the E3 Harelbeke, most recently in 2013.The local authority had Berg ten Houte rebuilt with cobblestones in spring 2018, for extra challenge!The Berg ten Houte is actually one of the oldest 'stone roads' in the Flemish Ardennes. Ever since Roman times this has been a connection between Wallonia and the Valley of the Schelde north of Maarkedal. Hopefully Berg ten Houte will be included again in the course of the Tour of Flanders, and this time as a cobblestone hill!
