Classic Flanders racing

Training

Last w/e on the Saturday Dale & Keith rode to Thanet and back to catch Snowdown Colliery RFC beat Thanet Wanderers 26 to 15: it was warm & sunny for the ride.

On the Sunday the weather had become bitterly cold and the rendezvous at the Two Sawyers at Woolage Green for a team photocall was abandoned by a variety of no-shows.

Sadly our driver Roger was caught up in this.

Naturally the diehards were in attendance.

Brenda at the pub has kindly allowed us to put a charity box on the bar for collecting cash donations for our charities. Thanks in advance for all those who contribute.

On April 6th the team (and others) are in Belgium for the Tour of Flanders Sportive.

TourofFlanders profile

They’ll be riding 174km (110 miles) in one day over many famous Flemish short, steep and narrow cobbled climbs including the Muur-Kapelmuur at Geraardsbergen, the Koppenberg, Oude Kwaremont and the Paterberg as well as a series of bone-rattling flat cobbled sections such as the Paddestraat.

Planning

No progress this week as our passports were required for travel to Belgium and therefore couldn’t be left at the Embassy.

Equipment

Keith had a set of Ortlieb panniers arrive to join his Vaudes.

 

“Hi, I’m glad you like your panniers, I wish you a great ‘adventure’ and keep in touch, I envy you have a great trip. Before you start make sure you fit a ‘mirror’ on your bar, the reason I’m telling you, my mirror saved my life. When you’ve completed your trip, put me down for £100 for your charity. Kind Regards” Darrell Davis

“PS don’t forget a mirror.”

Linford apparently has a bike arriving next week – we think it’s this one.
