Vacation in Belgium!(7 posts)

Vacation in Belgium!rollo tommassi

Most people like to go to warm, sunny places with beaches and spas for their hard earned vacation.

I, on the other hand, will be braving the blustery, rainy, muddy feilds of Belgium during what is arguably the biggest week of classic bike racing.

On April 7, I will wake up in a hotel in Bruges to watch the Tour of Flanders start. Wednesday, Gent-Wevelgem. Sunday, the Helll of the North.

Rest assured, my fellow RBR-ers, that I will bring back great stories and fabulous pictures.

I can't wait, and I can't wait to tell you all about it!!

Have a few at this wonderful bar for me. If you haven't been, it's near the main square and has over 300 beers available. Oh, and don't forget to bring back some chocolate.

Ha ha! that's a very funny line.

I also like the phrase "be with bicycle", it appeals to my (albeit weak) maternal instincts. I like the idea of a bike be akin to a child that you nurture, protect, and bond with.

However, we have opted not to bring bikes with us, as we will be traveling around quite a bit (2 days in Bruges, 3 days in Brussels, etc). But, I'm sure we will rent or borrow from a certain Chicago native who just happens to be a mechanic for a certain Belgian team......

Yes - photos to be posted, but I'm not sure how to share the beer or chocolate!!!
I'm jealous, have a great time! nmLen J
