I planned a trip from Holland to Belgium yesterday.
On my way.
Note how well you're protected here from the people driving their tin cans.
To the right...
Finally getting somewhere...right hand turn and on my way to Valkenswaard
....wonderful scenery right around the corner
I'm starting to think Belgium might be farther away than I thought it would be:)
Still going at a good pace...by now I noticed some "old-timer" roadie trailing (stalking) me...he never said a word nor offered to pull.
Getting close...Bank Change...don't they know they have Euros in Belgium too?
Approaching the border and cycling "Mecca" of Northern Europe.
Exactly at the border crossing.
Not sure what they're selling on the right hand side of the street, but it looks like they're having fun.
....it's official now.
Always good to have Belgium chickens siding with you.
Deeper into the heartland....it really does feel like you're going faster here:)
The Flemish need their news.
...they can't seem to do without bread either:) A machine for when the shops are closed.
Something for everyone.
You can even get a beer from the machine next to it.
.....leaving Lommel now.
Passed a local artist (got the camera viewpoint messed up but I thought it was an interesting pic nevertheless).
...looks like I'm entering Lommel again.
For the Flemish bike route turn right.
A fellow roadie is approaching. The only one that day who took the time to say hi.
Looks like he was having fun. I decided to head out where he came from.
Oh no...I'm back in Lommel again in front of the worlds most renowned center for culture and international relations. Now I've had it.
It's where I just came from...took a brake farther up there...
