BHCC “Rue du Mystère” – Race Day


We’ll be pleased to welcome 130 riders on Sunday 20 February, thanks to the support from the City of Forest and from the Fédération Cycliste Wallonie-Bruxelles.


We have just heard from Bruxelles Environnement that they are unable to check Parc Duden before tomorrow to guarantee that our event can be run safely. They have kindly asked us to relocate the BHCC race a few streets away from Rue Du Mystère.
Thanks to the precious and last minute support from the Commune de Forest and the police, we are pleased to inform you that the event WILL take place on the Beukenberg street, just 200 meters away from the original location for the race. We ask all participants to make their way to the Beukenberg ahead of their start times. 
Please rest assured that the event will go ahead as planned and that the road will closed to traffic tomorrow. We encourage you to come by bike or public transport. If you need to park a car you have many parking opportunities.

Do you have what it takes to get to the top?

Kids are also very much welcome to take part in the race!

Children can register on the race day and are asked to be there at least 20minutes before one of the two departure times to receive their race number.
Two kids races will be organised at 10h00 and 11h00. The kids races are organised as a leave-all-together TT with the aim of getting as far up the hill as possible on a bike and finish the hill by foot if needed.

There are no age restrictions and parents are more than welcome to assist and push their kids gently up the hill (make sure you leave enough space for kids around you though!). Geared bicycles are recommended on the course but are not an obligation.
All kids will receive a small reward at the top. Come and have fun!
