Formed in June 09, Here Come the Belgians is a non-elite anti-team celebrating all things cross, cobbled and Belgian.
Seeking a different experience to the traditional cycling club, its aim is to harness the energy of a vibrant internet cycling community with grass roots racing and riding based around Cyclocross and Spring Classics. There is no race programme in the style of a racing team, more a collection of individual experiences through rides and racing, in whatever location a member may be, that all can share in and contribute toward.

Ronde van Oost Lancashire April 3rd 2010

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!

  1. Are you deliberately timing these events so that I'm away climbing? I'd love to attend but will probably be on the annual Fontainebleau boldering trip... I will attempt to attend in spirit at least ;-)
