  • Before I speak to other cycling buddies....

    I have been contacted by a lady who hosted me and some friends for Flanders a few years ago about availability at her brilliant B&B just north of Oudenaarde.

    See the belgian website- http://www.cosyhuisje.be/ Its an amazing converted garage at the rear of her house...

    I am free on the 4-6th May and quite fancy jumping in my estate and heading over and doing some boozing and hard riding in prep for paris-roubaix.

    If anyone is interested please let me know by close of play tomorrow... It is always great fun and easy to pop over and back...

  • In.

  • Would love to do that. Count me in.

  • Great - I will lock down the accomodation in the garage at the back (two x twins) and then if we get to 5 people I will take the room in the house with lovely Rita....

  • Ello ello.

  • Hot tub !

  • Thats extra - and a fair bit extra - but last time we just said fug it...

  • I'd be keen for this, if you've still got space 🇧🇪🚲

  • I'd be happy to join! I've noticed the Monday is a Bank Holiday, so that works out really well. Think Matt_N is keen too.

    edit: speak of the devil...

  • I had totally missed that it was a bank holiday so I will think about if its Friday to Sunday or if we extend into Monday and avoid any time off work.... probably would make more sense to leave v early on Saturday and have Sat and Sunday night there...

    We have max 5 people in my car with 5 bikes on tow bar rack..
    The garage at the B&B has a double room and a twin at 310 Euros for the two nights - circa 100 euros each for the three people
    The room in the house is also probably a double but am double checking.. This is also 100 Euros for two nights

    So, without sharing beds or an extra bed the capacity is 4 or 5 people - I have asked Rita about an extra bed on the floor... I think thats what we did last time.

    I've had a variety of interest on here and on text with some people saying yes subject to wife confirmation last night...

    I will sort out tomorrow and confirm

  • By the way - I have paid a deposit for the accom so you @Ved and @Mat are on the hook anyways and confirmed as you said yes early doors before the surge in interest

  • Head to toe and we double our sleeping capacity?

  • Good stuff. Is in the diary.

  • HA!

    Is @DavidM coming ?


  • Sorry, bit late to party.

    And I've had a boozy lunch.

  • What tow bar rack have you got @Anton_D ? Was looking into getting one of those

  • I have a seasucker double which can go on top too.

  • Blimey, those look ace. Are we posh biking it or cx bikes?

  • Mat.

    CX season is over.

  • I meant CX bikes with 25's like wot you rode on Sunday

  • I'm going to take the Pony Biek (tm)

  • oof. dat stem

  • 120

  • I'd be into this but sounds like you have 5 already.. Nice airbnb down the road in Oudenaarde tho


  • Get on it Dommy
