[QUOTE=Bruco] ... of course, the rider, will suffer. Expect everything to be shaking madly (don't shift too often on the kasseien) and to see water bottles flying around.
Yeah, I know it's hard on those stones. Practically all of my tours include
some notorious zones like 'Wannegem-Lede', 'Mater' and the 'Steenbeekdries'...
Evidently, there is also the 'Koppenberg', 'Paterberg', 'Taaienberg'... Since my
old bicycle (steel frame) didn't feel so stiff anymore on climbing these steep
hills, I decided to get a new one. I didn't plan to get the Trek 5200, but since
I could buy it for a great price, I couldn't turn the offer down. I think this
bike is going to give me even more fun than I already got from cycling. Especially in this lovely environment... I could recommend all cycling fans
to try these roads. Indeed, 'De Ronde' for tourists is superb, I participated in
2003 and, although quite hard, it's a great tour.
