Hello from Brussels!

Hello,
My name is Evrard, I discovered this forum a couple month ago and have been reading a lot since.
I live in Brussels, and resently got into cycling in spring, the weather was so nice here I had to find myself a bike I could ride. So I looked around on ebay and what not, looking for a old road bike. Using unlikely search word, I found an old peugeot road bike that I got it for 23 euros! just had to change the tires wich cost me more than the bike but that's all right.
I have been riding around since. But I then found another bike for cheap... Diamant belgian road bike, wich I also bought for 31 euros, it is more sprorty I guess, tubular tires with mavic rims from the late 80' i think. so I ride the two of them, the peugeot has fenders wich is nice in wet condition.

Anyway this is my little introduction.
Thanks for such a good forum!

Belgium rocks. I've rode from Maastricht, NL to Vise, BE several times. Riding along the Meuse River is nice, very scenic. Next year, I want to go all the way to Liege.
