#Grenzeloos Limburg Challenge 2022
South Limburg and the surrounding border region have hundreds of hills, but we often cycle the famous and/or well-known ones. Until now!
Limburg Cycling and Mycols are now challenging you to participate in the #Grenzeloos Limburg Challenge 2022.
Sixteen hills in and around Zuid-Limburg (max. 10 km from the border) which will be unknown to many, but therefore no less beautiful or challenging.
If you complete the challenge, you will receive the virtual borderless cycling jersey at Mycols as a virtual reward and you will be eligible for a beautiful Limburg cycling package with shirt, racing cap, socks and water bottle!
Historical climbs of the Amstel Gold Race
Since the beginning of the Amstel Gold Race in 1966, Limburg has been the battleground for the riders. In the beginning there was only one lap through Limburg, but the organisers started looking for more and more extreme climbs. At this moment the Amstel Gold Race is the race with the most climbs in the professional peloton.
This jersey is a tribute to the many climbs that have made the Amstel Gold Race what it is today. In the course of time, the finish has often changed location, so that each time other slopes were decisive. In the beginning the Snijdersberg and Lange Raarberg, and later on of course the Pietersberg and Cauberg.

Best Hills around Barcelona city
Barcelona is an amazing city to cycle. Bike-friendly city, but also plenty of climbs around.
In fact, there are so many interesting climbs that sometimes it is difficult to pick which to choose!
The BHBC jersey shows the best 7 hills around Barcelona. Best ones in terms of views, scarce traffic and also good surface. On top of that, all of them are very close to any point of centric Barcelona, so they are very easy to get.
Not too long, not too steep, not too high, not so hard to get to the top, but mild climbs to enjoy cycling at its best! All year long, even the coldest days in winter these climbs are rideable. Maybe once a year you will see snow at the top of Tibidabo at 500 mts height? Maybe.
Another interesting thing of the climbs included in this jersey is that they can be climbed very easily in just 2 stages (well, just one if you are a die-hard cyclist).
More: all these climbs have been included in the Volta a Catalunya and Vuelta a España stages, but did you know that La Conreria was also included in the Tour de France 2009?

This race is one of the toughest classics in the Dutch cycling world, with tough climbs, fast descents, early dropouts, rain and hail, crashes, narrow victories and talented winners. The race is described in the south as a “pearl of cycling”.
