Calling all Belgians, calling all Belgians.........
Come and join us for the real deal in East Lancashire on Sat 3rd April - cafe at the car park for post ride dissection, weather guaranteed (not saying what sort...) and of course more cobbles than you can shake a 24mm Pave tire at.
It is fair to point out that both routes are challenging and require a reasonable degree of fitness, though the Achtervolgers group will miss out some miles and a fair amount of extra climbing from the full route without foregoing the Flandrian feel. We are running it as a 'Gentleman's and Ladies' ride and will ride together and look after each other in time honoured fashion, though I suspect there may be some action on the climbs....
Maury and Wolfram (and Jez)- we realise that attending this may be a stretch too far for you all but we will have you along in spirit. Bon courage!
