I've always loved bikes and when I moved to the Netherlands it was the perfect place to buy more bikes. Lets face it the most prized possession of a Dutchman is his bike and each one owns about three. When I was young and raced a road bike I wanted a mountain bike. When that got nicked I brought a mountain bike. And finally ten years later I finally have both again.
So whats the blog about? Well now that I use the road bike a lot more I've met some friends and we have plenty of laughs along the way. We all share a passion for cycling. It doesn't really matter if your fat and slow or lean and fast. Enjoying yourself comes first. Along the way there's lots of fun and a few dramas as well. This year we have all signed up for one Sportive to compete or even complete.
I've signed up for a few more than the rest but most are to help me with one event. The Trans-Portugal in where else but Portugal. The lovely Mrs BobGfish was the one that suggested I go for this event. Not sure she was aware what was about to happen.
So a list of my events this year are
- Ronde van Vlandeeren
- Paris Roubaix
- Amstel Gold
- Liege Bastogne Liege
- Trans Portugal (MTB)
- Klim Classic
- Jean Nelissen Classic
- Passportes Du Soleil (MTB)
- La Marmotte
I'm hoping to share some of the problems and pains along the way. I'm certainly looking forward to it all.
