Cycling things in Brussels

Postby got-sole » Thu Nov 08, 2012 15:02 pm

Popping over to Brussels on the Eurostar on the 16th- 20th Nov, and was wondering if anyone knows of any cycling based fun to be had over there. (not taking my bike though)

Any cycling culture, shops or races etc worth visiting?

Any suggestions would be great

Cheers

You're deep into the CX season - as a winter sports it's huge in Belgium. There's a Superprestige event at Gavere on Sunday 18th:

Judging by the map, it's probably no more than an hour from Brussels.

In terms of Cycling Culture, you won't get much better than the Ronde van Vlaanderen (RVV) Museum in Oudenaarde:

There's a train service from Brussels
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
