I'm OFF to the ARDENNES
Yippidyfriggindoodah! The trip couldn't come at a more perfect time. For the past few weeks, I feel like i've spent day and night sitting at the computer - writing. It feels like my fingers have morphed into permanent typing position. Good thing the same hand position is used to grab the handlebar!
Usually i don't mind long days at the keyboard because i get playtime on the bike every day. But for as long as i can remember the weather here in belgium has been undeniably wretched! Playtime just isn't the same when you have to step out into a wall of rain, hail, snow and hurricaine-level winds.
Even though the weather in the Ardennes (southern hilly part of belgium - somewhat similar to West Marin, CA) may just as well be as bad as it's been here, at least there will be awesome views! It's going to be tough to have limited internet access for four whole days, but i think it will be a good thing - at least for my fingers! Oh, and they have a TV there so i can continue to watch the big bike races every day this week.
Here are a few photos i took from our last trip to the Ardennes so you know where i'm headed...
Have a great week!
