    Cycling is a big thing in Belgium. Like the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France, Belgium has it's 'Ronde van Vlaanderen'.
    Here's a small Wikipedia article about the bit that goes through Geraardsbergen, famous for its steepness and all cobblestones.

    I also liked this article that depicts the atmosphere well, and has lots of photos of the real thing!

    Equipment: Specifics about the 'Wall' (Muur) at Geraardsbergen like gradients, distance, altitude and map.

    Tom Boonen

    Tour of Flanders edition 2005. And the winner is ........ Tom Boonen.We were invited as VIP. My dear beloved Vt friend Irisbe told me that VIP stands for "Very intoxicated Persons" - maybe she is right, but anyhow
    I can assure you - it was a thriller of a race - but the 24 years old Tom wrote history.
    And last but not least - the winner of the classic tour "Paris-Roubaix"

    Equipment: A good glass of Belgian beer, and a private driver.

    Professional cycling

    Cycling, next to football the most favourite sport in Belgium.
    I saw this black/white painting somewhere next to the marketplace of Geraardsbergen.
    It was the day for cycling tourism, on a saturday, one day before the profs started.
    Believe me or not, but more than 14.999 bikers took part. Edition 2005 was a topic;

    Equipment: I was so called non active, but had some small change in the pocket to have a good famous Belgian beer - a local meal - and a lot of fun, meeting some good friends like Johan-the Canon Man
