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.

I have a dream!

I suppose that riding a bike is all about dreams. It's what gets me out of the door on a cold, damp and dark morning in January. The possibility of improving form as the weather improves. Imagining the sun on my face and the wind on my back. I would imagine most of us have memories of exceptional days and dreams of rides to come.

One dream for me is a ride in the national hill climb championship. This year it is on a relatively local course. Long Hill near Buxton.
One which is not totally unsuited to someone of my build. (Tall, some might say powerfully built, others might just whisper of cake or beer...)

In order to ride I need to be part of a CTT affiliated club. (I've got the paperwork for this and would be happy to stand/share the cost.) Is there anyone else who would like to ride an occasional time trial or hill climb? Is anyone brave/stupid enough to share the dream of riding the national?

  1. I've done time trials as a Belgian but they were sign on the line jobs rather than a National Champs.

    Long Hill was a fave of mine years ago - suits me too as it is not mega steep. Will check date and see if conflicts with cross/ Peaks schedule.
