newbie from Belgium

Having moved to Belgium, I felt obliged to start cycling to keep fit some years ago. Despite a lazy streak I try to keep it regular with a healthy balance of road and MTB.

Cycling is in the blood here in Belgium, there is a very active club scene all year round. The beer is also very very good.

I completed the Tour of Flanders earlier this year, and was enormously pleased despite being overtaken by a one-legged guy on an MTB before the first of those hills.

I am a slave to Felt bikes.

Goals are to do all the European road classics, and eventually the Cape Epic.

This forum seems good for reviews and tech advice so I joined. By all means look me up if you are in town.

Hello gordo, there's a few other member in Belgium--try looking them up in the regretably underused Europe regional forum.

Do you have photos of the Tour de Flandres? I think we need to see the one-legged man on a MTB pulling away from you .

Welcome to BF!

Hello East Hill

No photo's unfortunately, despite my trying to look conspicuous when passing the official photographers.

I did nose around the European forum, I see a Belgium vs Holland discussion worth adding to.

Thanks for the welcome

Now, if you'd been trying to sneak past, then we would have photos, eh? Too bad!
