Did a sweet ride today , 40 miles and 3215 feet of climbing. I was done when arrived at the finish.

Video is a promo video of this organized ride (we call them tour rides or "toertocht" in Flemish/Dutch)

Congratulations - good ride! I'm guessing the weather was much nicer for your ride today than in the promo video. Think I'll check out more Belgium rides on that link. I can't translate all the text, but I think we all agree how good it is to get out in natuur.

Oh yes the weather is supah sweet right now in Belgium. It's the hottest place in Europe for the moment ,i kid you not.

I do love to be out there in the nature/natuur. :wink:

1130 bikers were present for this ride. Not all of them did the longest distance tho.

Well done -- I'll toast your ride with Chimay Cinq Cents today. It's my first time drinking a true Belgian ale; what a nice coincidence.

The miracle of the Internet is that a guy in California and a guy in Belgium can toast each other. Very tasty by the way -- nice balance of malt and hops.

By chance did you have bbq'd chicken with a teriyaki wasabi glaze along with your ale?
