The Kluisberg can be climbed from different directions but this one, via the Bergstraat, would be the most classic route. The climb from Ruien totaled 11 times (1955, 1966, 1997-2003, 2007, 2010 in )the Tour of Flanders. In the 50s and 60s of the twentieth century this was a wide cobbled road, after which it became paved. Also other races such as Dwars door Vlaanderen and the E3 Prijs and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne Kuurne included this climb in the parcours.
