Flanders, Belgium- Posers, bare mammeries, nude podium girlsContinental
Jun 29, 2003 9:11 AM
Somehow last week I had a travel itinerary with 5 days in Flanders, Belgium but I only had 3 days on my work agenda. Free vacation! Belgium is the most bicycle friendly place on the planet, so, I rented a bike and started my ride in the medieval city of Brugge. This is a typical bike path that runs through much of the country and the best thing is that pedestrians and cars respect the paths.

Even on the narrow side streets bicycles take precedence over cars. And no need to nod or wave at every cyclist you encounter. A Flemish introvert looks at his feet when he talks to you. A Flemish extrovert looks at your feet when he talks to you. And Flemish cyclist just go on their way.

I was out early enough to avoid the crowds. The city has beautiful canals and ancient buildings.

I was eager to see the countryside, so I followed the canal and left the town behind me.

I continued until I intersected with the Leopoldskanaal. I can't amagine what it was like to dig this by hand.

Along the canal was a smoothly paved towpath. I saw several men in their 70's on road bikes in spandex hammering down the towpath ( at least it was hammering for septagenarians).

I diverted from the towpath and rode through the countryside. I came across this quaint farmhouse

Behind the farmhouse were these females with bare mammeries.

In Flanders Fields
IN Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
John McCrae (1872-1918)

When you're thirsty and need to use the bathroom there's nothing better to see.

Those cobbles wouldn't be too good on a roadie bike. Otherwise it's a nice idea...

It wasn't about the bike. Over 40 lbs, 6 speed bottom of the line Shimano derailleur, everything else generic. I was in street clothes and running shoes. No computer or HRM. Fueled by a Belgian waffle and chocolates I rode over 100 km without any major discomfort. It was one of the best rides of my life. And the local beers were the best recovery drink ever.
Cheap ploy to gain traffic!noveread

But all I can say is outstanding photos! The pictures of the quiet back streets were my favorite. Fantastic!

To bad in the U.S.A. cyclists and pedestrians don't get that respect.

Well, you dragged me into this link under false pretences but what a refreshing change! Great photographs. Next time go in April and get a nice shot of Museeuw.

I live in Lexington, Kentucky, which I think is the least bicycle-friendly city in the country. At least, it feels that way. I stay away from the roads most of the time (I'm more of a mt biker), and will probably stick to secondaries when I finally get a road bike one of these days.

There are a few roads with bicycle lanes, but they're scattered wildly throughout the city, and stop and start with no warning. Completely nonsensical. A friend was thinking of riding around 5 miles to school, and that lasted all of one time...he was afraid for his life. Sad, really.
OK, I admit it. I looked. Great report!!! (nm)PseuZQ

Truly some of the nicest photos I've seen posted. Nice job. I can't hide my jealousy. What camera did you use?
The cameraContinental

The camera was a 2.3 megapixel Toshiba with 3 X optical zoom and flash memory that I bought about 2 years ago for around $300 for my wife's business. Her business didn't do well, so I confiscated the camera. I haven't used my 35 mm SLR since. It's not that great, but it is inexpensive, convenient, and tough. I dropped it off my bike at about 15 mph and it came away with a only few cosmetic scratches.
Take me with you!!!rollo tommassi
