Off to Flanders

I fly to Flanders Sunday night.  Arrive Monday.  Watch a little De Panne, race a kermis in Brugge, ride the paths and pave and bergs, take in the bike racing museum and a little meeting with Freddy Maertens, and ride the Ronde Van Vlaanderen Wielertouriste Saturday April 4.  All 260k, just like the pros, only the day before.  And, with that in my legs, I eat, eat eat, get a good night's sleep and then do the rallye thing and course hop the Ronde itself.
