    Had the good fortune to take my bike to Europe earlier this year and get some road riding in while I was there. Hauling a travel bike around with me (a Ritchey Breakaway) is one of the most fun things I've ever done :)

    Anyway, here's a few pics from some riding I did on the Tour of Flanders course. HIGHLY recommended!

    Some more photos and a moooving story here

    Thanks for posting this! Really cool RR. Belgium has been on my list of the places I'd love to go do a riding tour (someday) - seeing this kinda turns the wick up on something I'd forgotten about. Guess I'll sip an Orval tonight and look up plane flights...
