30 March – The Flandrien Lion

Download the MP3

A very special BikeLove this week.  This time last year I was lucky enough to watch The Tour of Flanders in Belgium.   An awesome one day race that tests the brute strength of the riders.  260kms in total, the race begins from the flat low lands and then makes 15 climbs heading towards the finish at Ninove.  Many parts of the race are cobblestone, big, flat, gruesome barbaric cobblestones… the kind that make you teeth jitter and arms kill.

Check out this years race this Monday 6th April
