The 'Lettenberg' hill is a spur of the much larger Kemmel Hill.

The Lettenberg hill is a spur of the much larger Kemmelberg and is frequently the launchpad for attacks early in finale of Gent-Wevelgem. Pay attention on the descent, the road is full of holes in exactly the wrong places. A pause in Kemmel before the climb is worth it for a visit to Cafe Boutique, an excellent cycling cafe, with jerseys from Tom Boonen and Eddy Merckx amongst others.
