I know, I know, it's all FLAT. After last weeks 170km in the Belgium Ardennes I was happy to have some flat roads to consume. Speaking of consuming: When I had about 30km to go I started to feel very hungry. Just a minute later I saw this on the side of the road:

Seven lolly pops which used to be my favourite when I was a youngster. Five were still ok and I may not be a guy who takes his food off the tarmac, but this felt like a gift from above

I ate those things within 5 minutes. It was enough to get me to my goal, the local pub.

All in all a perfect day for sure. Only flaw was that my buttocks are not best friends with turbo saddles, but it'll live through I guess.
