In August 2010, I got myself a road bike. Nothing fancy, a Cannondale CAAD9, to ride with friends around Brussels, where I live.
In the process of choosing and then buying the bike, I searched the web for information. Since I got the bike, I have also found a wealth of information on and off the web on where to ride, how to ride, and so on.
But what I have not found is a roadie-oriented blog on cycling in and around Brussels. The purpose of this blog is not, of course, to rival with “real cycling blogs” or cycling news sites. It’s modestly to provide information to fellow local big noobs and, perhaps, give a flavour of what road cycling feels like here, in and around Brussels.
Why then blog in english, and not in french or in flemish? Well, first, because I don’t speak flemish and second, because I belong to the “expat bubble” of Brussels and “english” is our latin.
Hope you enjoy this!
