This weekend sadly a young rider was lost in Flanders. I thought of this post idea a while ago, but obviously I can’t go without a thought for Antoine Demoltié and his family… Regardless of this little post, make every ride a #RideForAntoine



We are in the heart of perhaps my favourite part of the cycling road race season. Flanders fever.

I time for hard men and women, muurs, bergs and pave. I don’t claim to be a hard man by any stretch, but I love riding a bit of pave, especially if it is up a berg or a muur.


I am hoping to encourage all and sundry to post pictures of any of your local muurs, bergs or stretches of pave. Be as lenient as you want in your definition of them all, just harness your inner Flandrien to decide.

And don’t limit it to Spring. Seek, ride and shoot em all year round.

#mymuur, #myberg or #mypave (or all three??) and pop a #mysommets as they are all a Sommet to our mind.

It was purely a selfish idea initially, as I want to see your muurs, bergs and paves and maybe come and ride them with some nice folk in the future.

A couple for starters, from here in Barcelona.
