The name brings fear, "Doodeman" in Dutch means dead man. The name originated from the fact that the descent by horse and chariot was fatal for a farmer. Fear brings also the face of the slope. The little bastard brother of the Keutenberg walks steeply uphill. Shifting down to a small gear and struggling with gradients above 16 percent. Once you're out of the pain cave and on top of the climb, look back. The view of the Geuldal is beautiful.
