One Year Ago

Four of us went to the Classics.

Here is the photo gallery from that trip:

We watched the Tour of Flanders on the Patterburg, three kilometers from where we park the RV. The Patterburg climb was an awesome venue to see the race, panoramic views of the course, plenty of food and beer tents and good people.

There is great riding between Gent and Oudenaarde. The Ronde Museum in Oudenaarde is a must see. Refuel in the cafe.

For Paris/Roubaix, we camped near Cysoing in the heart of pays du nord. There were pavé sectors every where, and if you ride the day before the race, the course is marked and you may ride with pros. The Forest of Arenberg is the most impressive place to ride a bike.
We watched the race in the bar in the sports complex that house the Roubaix Velodrome and when the riders were getting close, we went into the Velodrome to see the finish. Spectacular!

That was an amazing trip.
Cheers,
Huffy
